Consumer Recalls: Fan Heaters

Touch Point Fan Heaters

Meijer Inc., of Grand Rapids, Mich. announced a voluntary recall of Touch Point Fan Heaters because the exposed and unshielded electrical components can cause the heater to overheat and melt, posing fire and electrical shock hazards. This recall involves Touch Point brand oscillating forced air fan heaters with model number HW-218 and date code 0811. The model number and date code are on a silver sticker on the bottom of the heater. Universal Product Code (UPC) 7-13733-30927-1 is on the bottom of the packaging. The heaters are white, 12 inches tall, 9 inches wide and 8 inches deep. They have two round control knobs and a red warning light on the top front, and a black on/off switch on the front base that controls the fan’s oscillation. The words “Touch Point” appear on the right front of the heater’s base. The affected heaters were sold at Meijer stores in Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan and Ohio from September 2011 through November 2011 for about $20.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled heaters and return them to any Meijer store for a full refund. For additional information, contact Meijer at (800-927-8699) between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or visit the firm’s website.

Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.
