CHARLOTTE, N.C. – February 8, 2024 – Electrolux Group today requested that owners of certain Frigidaire side by side refrigerators contact the company to receive a free replacement ice bucket to remedy the issue addressed in the recall. Consumers can verify if their side by side refrigerator is affected by checking www.IceBucketRecall.com. The models included in the recall are no longer in production and are not available for sale at retail.
The reason for the recall is an ice bucket assembly component that can break resulting in plastic pieces entering the ice bucket, posing a potential choking and/or laceration hazard to consumers if the pieces are dispensed.
“Consumer safety is our top priority, and we take this matter very seriously,” said Electrolux Group North America Product Safety Director Chad Strickland. “We have decided to voluntarily recall these affected refrigerators in partnership with CPSC and Health Canada and sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.”
Check www.IceBucketRecall.com to see if both your model and serial number are on the affected refrigerator list. Both numbers can be found on a label inside the refrigerator.
If it is on the affected list, consumers should stop using the ice maker until the replacement ice bucket assembly has been installed. Consumers may continue to use the refrigerator without ice production.
If it is on the affected list, consumers can receive a new ice bucket assembly, free of charge, at www.IceBucketRecall.com.
Consumers should remove and discard the old ice bucket and replace it with the new ice bucket assembly once it is received.
Please note: Products with other serial numbers within the Frigidaire, Frigidaire Professional and Electrolux lines are not affected.
