Frigidaire Professional Over the Range Microwave / potato sensor didn't shut off.. fire

On tuesday, may 12, 2015, I put a potato in the microwave, pressed the "potato" button on the automatic sensor, after a few minutes I smelled smoke, checked the microwave and the potato was on fire. The microwave was black inside, and no longer worked. My house was full of smoke.
I am writing this complaint after reading several other complaints on the same issue. The potato sensor does not shut off. This is a fire hazard, and I have not yet reported it to my insurance. This sounds like a recall issue. Do something before someone's house burns down and/or someone gets burned. I got this microwave in 2008. It has rarely been used, as I generally reside in a second home. I thought it was just the age of the microwave, but after reading several other complaints identical to mine. Odd eh? This needs to be resolved immediately.
