Maytag has expanded an ongoing Maytag recall to include 46,000 more refrigerators from the Maytag®, Magic Chef®, Performa by Maytag® and Crosley® brands. Maytag announced the latest Maytag recall because of a fire hazard that may result from an electrical failure that causes the refrigerators to overheat.

The refrigerators recalled in the March Maytag recall were from the following brands: Maytag®, Jenn-Air®, Amana®, Admiral®, Magic Chef®, Performa by Maytag® and Crosley®.
