A fire risk is prompting a massive recall reminder. 

More than two million dehumidifiers are being recalled by manufacturer, Gree. They were sold in varying shapes, sizes and colors and under 13 different brands, including Frigidaire, GE and Kenmore. 

The company has almost 500 reports of overheating and more than 120 fires.  The first recall was announced last year. It's been both updated and expanded since then. But people are still using the units, so the company is re-announcing the recall.
