The devices can overheat, smoke and catch fire, according to the CPSC, posing fire and burn hazards to consumers.

About 2.2 million of the dehumidifiers were sold in the United States and 52,500 were sold in Canada.

Consumers are being advised to immediately turn off and unplug the dehumidifiers and contact Gree to receive a full refund. There have been reports of 165 incidents involving the affected devices, the CPSC said, including 46 fires and $2.15 million in property damage. There have been no reports of injuries.
