Whirlpool Recalls Glass Cooktops with Touch Controls Due to Burn and Fire Hazards

August 28, 2019 - from CPSC in conjunction with Healthy Canada:

Whirlpool, KitchenAid and JennAir brand glass cooktops with touch controls have been recalled because the recalled cooktop surface elements can turn on by themselves, posing burn and fire hazards.

They were manufactured from December 2016 through July 2019. The brand name is printed on the cooktop and the model number and serial numbers are printed on the underside of the cooktop. The model numbers beginning with K are KitchenAid models, the model numbers beginning with W are Whirlpool models, and the model numbers beginning with J are JennAir models.
