A settlement has been proposed in a class action lawsuit pending in the United States District Court for the District of Connecticut (the “Court”). The lawsuit alleges that General Electric Company (“GE”) sold certain GE-branded microwave ovens that contained defects such that the glass on the door of these microwaves may break or shatter spontaneously. GE denies that the microwaves are defective and denies that it did anything wrong.

The proposed Settlement will provide monetary benefits to persons (other than retailers, resellers, or wholesalers) who purchased or owned a GE Profile or GE Monogram brand microwave oven bearing the model numbers JEB1090, JEB1095, ZMC1090, or ZMC1095 (a “Covered Microwave”), manufactured between 1995 and 2007.
