Portable heater recall
CREATED Jan. 11, 2013
It's getting cold outside. We want to make sure you're not using a recalled portable heater to stay warm.
This recall is of two models of 1500 watt Climate Keeper ceramic heaters. Both models have a fan, two dials on top, a wire mesh panel in front and the name "Climate Keeper" and a label on the bottom with the model number and ETL 3130679. Model #FH107A has grey plastic housing. Model #PTC-902T is an oscillating heater with silver-grey plastic housing, a molded handle on top of the heater and a small extra button between the two dials which controls the oscillation.
They were recalled by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission last summer. It turns out the heaters can overheat and melt, posing a fire or electric shock hazard.
So it's important you don't use these heaters. For more information call Big Lots at (866) 244-5687.
