CPSC, Meijer Reannouces Recall for Touch Point Heaters over Fire Hazards

07/13/2011 // WPB, FL, USA // Personal Injury Lawyers News // Nicole Howley

Grand Rapids, MI — The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Meijer Inc., have re-announced a voluntary product recall of Touch Point Oscillating Ceramic Heaters, which were originally recalled in November 2010 for fire hazards the product poses. The CPSC announced the additional recall of 13,000 heaters on July 13, 2011.

The product recall was issued after discovering that the oscillating mechanism in the heaters can short out, which poses a fire hazard to consumers.

The CPSC reported: This announcement involves previously recalled Touch Point oscillating ceramic heaters with model number PTC-902. The grey/silver color heaters are about 10-inches tall, have a black screen across the front and controls on the top. The model number and UPC code 7-60236-58339 are printed on a metal label/plate on the bottom of the heater. Some models have an additional digit in the UPC code, making it a 12-digit code. In addition, some heaters will have a UPC code 7-13733-29222 sticker on the bottom of the packaging box.

Consumers have been advised to return the recalled heaters to the nearest Meijer retail store for a full refund of the purchase price. Those who purchased the heaters at another location other than a Meijer store should contact Meijer to arrange a refund.

For more information about the product recall, consumers can contact Meijer at (800) 927-8699 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or visit www.meijer.com.
