Product • LG Electric ranges, sold at Best Buy, Home Depot, Sears and regional appliance retailers nationwide from January 2006 to June 2010 for $800 to $1,999.

Problem • Burners on the electric ranges can fail to turn off, and the temperature setting can increase unexpectedly during use, posing burn and fire hazards. LG has received 80 reports of such incidents, although no fires or injuries have been reported. Consumers may contact LG toll-free at 1-855-400-4638, from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, and from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, or go to http://www.LG.com/us and click on "Public Notices" in the Customer Services section for more information.

Vehicle • Jeep Grand Cherokee 2002-2004, and Jeep Liberty 2002-2003

Problem • A component in the air-bag control module may fail, causing the front air bags, side-curtain air bags and/or seatbelt pretensioners to deploy inadvertently while the vehicle is being operated. Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will install a supplemental jumper harness to the air-bag control module for free. The recall is expected to begin in January. Owners may contact Chrysler at 1-800-247-9753.
