Wal-Mart Recalls 330,000 Griddles, Citing Electrical Shock Threat

Wal-Mart Stores Inc. is recalling 330,000 Rival brand griddles because they pose an electrical shock hazard, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). The heating element in the griddles can crack, according to the CPSC, which could lead to shocks if water gets inside while it's plugged in. The griddles were sold at Walmart stores nationwide and online between July 2015 and Dec. 2015 for about $20. There have not been any injuries or incidents reported, the CPSC said. Consumers are advised to unplug and cease using their griddles and return them to Walmart for a refund.
