(WBNG Binghamton) Janome America Inc. has recalled its Elna Sewing Machines.

About 600 units were sold at sewing machine stores nationwide from September 2010 through April 2011 for about $3,000.

The wires inside the sewing machine can short circuit, posing a risk of fire.

The firm knows of one report of a sewing machine catching fire. No injuries or property damage have been reported.

This recall involves the Elna eXcellence 740 sewing machine.

The machine is white and navy with a digital touch panel.

“Elna” and “eXcellence 740” are printed on the front of the machine.

Consumers should immediately unplug and stop using the machine and return it to the store where it was purchased for a free repair.

For additional information, contact Janome America at (800) 631-0183 anytime or visit the firm's website at www.elnausa.com
