Norcross, GA—PD Sixty Distributor Inc. and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) have voluntarily recalled about 3,000 portable space heaters for fire hazards. The CPSC announced the product recall on February 8, 2011.
The recall was initiated after discovering that the space heater can overheat because of loose electrical connections, which poses a fire hazard to consumers.
“This recall involves Creative Heating Solutions brand portable space heaters with model number CH-750, CH-750FC, CH-1500 or CH-1500FC. The heater is wooden on three sides, with metal on the fourth side. The front of the heater includes a vent and a clear plastic faceplate with six black buttons. Some units have ‘Creative Heating Solutions’ stamped into the rear metal panel and the model number on a white label on the rear metal panel,” according to the CPSC press release.
Consumers are advised to contact PD Sixty to receive a free replacement heater. All known purchasers of the heaters have been contacted by the firm.
