Frigidaire is recalling around 383,240 side-by-side refrigerators due to choking and cutting hazards, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said in a release this week. 

The Frigidaire Branded Side by Side Refrigerators with Slim Ice Buckets have an assembly component in the ice bucket that can break off with plastic pieces falling into the ice.

Last summer, Frigidaire recalled thousands of washer-dryer combination units after nearly two dozen caught fire.

In 2022, more than 150,000 GE refrigerators were recalled over a fall risk. 

The recall was initiated because the freezer handle can detach when a consumer tries to open the drawer, which poses a fall hazard, according to the CPSC.
