The following recalls have been announced:

_ About 900 Electrolux ICON and Kenmore 30-inch PRO gas ranges made in Canada by Electrolux Home Products Inc., of Augusta, Ga., because an incorrect part allows more fuel to pass to the range's oven than can be burned efficiently. This poses a risk of carbon monoxide poisoning to consumers. Electrolux has received four reports of carbon monoxide being released from the recalled gas range. No injuries have been reported. The recalled products were sold at appliance retailers nationwide from August 2008 through October 2009. Details: 888-360-8557 and 800-733-2299; on the Web at http://www.gasrangeorifice.com or http://www.cpsc.gov.

_About 5,400 boy's velour warm-up sets, made in Bangladesh by KT Group Inc., of New York, because the sweat shirts have drawstrings through the hoods, posing a strangulation hazard to children. No incidents or injuries have been reported. The velour sweat shirts have the name "Beverly Hills Polo Club" on the hangtag and on the center back neck. They were sold at Burlington Coat Factory nationwide from September 2007 through October 2009. Details: by phone at 212-947-2223; on the Web at http://www.fashionoptions.com or http://www.cpsc.gov.
