On January 5, 2016 I started my Farberware Crock Pot that I purchased from Walmart. Model #104554. 90-120 minutes later the crock pot exploded and my kitchen then caught on fire. Pieces of the crock pot were scattered all over the house. If someone had been in the kitchen when it happened it may have killed them. I have tried numerous times to contact Farberware. They say they only put their name on it. They are not responsible for it. I have been directed to several different companies after that but nobody will claim the product. I have a fire report that stated it was not an electrical fire. It started in the crock pot. I feel like this product is unsafe and Farberware is putting other consumers at risk because they do not want to take responsibility for a product that they put their name on.
