White-Rodgers Recalls Home Heating and Cooling Thermostats Due to Fire Hazard

More than one million thermostats sold in the United States and Canada since 2006 are being recalled because the batteries can leak and cause a fire.

Hazard: The alkaline batteries used in the thermostat can leak onto the circuit board posing a fire hazard.
