Meijer recalls touch point fan heaters due to fire, shock risks

nsplash

Attention anyone who has recently purchased a Meijer Touch Point forced air space heater: the CPSC has recently issued a recall on 6,102 units sold between September 2011 and November 2011. The space heaters, manufactured in China, were sold exclusively at Meijer stores in Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan and Ohio, so many in our area will probably not be affected.

The heaters contained exposed and unshielded electrical components wich caused one instance of a heater overheating and melting. No injuries have been reported; however, the owner’s carpet was burned and damaged.

The recall affects Touch Point oscillating forced air fan heaters with model number HW-218 and date code 0811. The heaters are white, 12 inches tall, 9 inches wide and 8 inches deep with two round control knobs and a red warning light on the top front. A black ON/OFF switch on the front base controls the fans oscillations.

If you purchased an affected Meijer Touch Point space heater, you can return it to any Meijer store for a full refund.

For more information, contact Meijer at (800) 927-8699 between 8 AM and 5 PM ET Monday through Friday, or visit the firm’s website at www.meijer.com.
