On 5/31/17, my tommee tippee bottle warmer caught fire and destroyed my kitchen cabinets. I purchased the starter kit from Amazon in October 2014 and I didn't have my daughter until January 2015. I breastfed my daughter for the first 9 months so I rarely used the bottle warmer. Typically we use the bottle warmer to warm my toddlers whole milk for breakfast and at bedtime. I left my home at 7:10 am to take my daughter to day care and the alarm company called me at 7:52 am to report the smoke detectors were going off. The alarm company dispatched the fire department who arrived at my home at approximately 8:03am and began to put out the fire. Fortunately the damage was contained to the cabinet and it could have been worse if my smoke detectors were not working. I filed a claim with my homeowners insurance so we can repair my kitchen and clean all the soot that is all over my home. With me being 8 months pregnant and having a toddler my family is staying in a hotel until the house is safe and clean for us to return. I definitely will not be buying tommee tippee products for this baby and I'm very disappointed and [angry]. After the fire I notice the fire recall and wonder why there wasn't news coverage to alert parents of the recall.

Comment from MAYBORN USA INC 6/22/2017
Mayborn Baby and Child is a responsible manufacturer of baby products and, as you would expect, child safety is at the heart of everything we do. All products are therefore designed and tested to US and European safety standards.
We are committed to developing high quality products, and when the Company learned that the US electric bottle warmers were manufactured in a manner that is not in accordance with the design specifications we quickly worked with the CPSC on a voluntary recall (number 16-199). Simultaneously we also worked together with retailers on notifying consumers about the recall and consumers who wish to obtain replacements can go online at www.tommeetippee.us and click on the recall button at the bottom of homepage for more information and/or call toll-free at 877-248-6922 anytime during the week and from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. ET Saturday.
The consumer has contacted us independently and we are working with her in relation to this matter.
