    LG Electronics and the Consumer Product Safety Commission has recalled electric ranges due to a burn and fire hazard.

    About 161,000 burners have been recalled. The burners on the ranges can fail to turn off after being switched off and the temperature setting can increase unexpectedly during use.

    LG has received 80 reports of incidents.

    No fires or injuries have been reported.

    The South Korean-based manufacturer said five models are involved in the recall. The recalled ranges involve models LRE30451, LRE30453, LRE30755, LRE30757 and LRE30955ST.

    The electronic ranges were sold at Best Buy, Home Depot, Sears, and regional appliance retailers nationwide from January 2006 to June 2010 for between $800 and $1999.

    If you have one of these electronic ranges, contact LG Electronics to schedule a free in-home repair at 855-400-4638, or check out www.CPSC.gov for more information.
