Home Depot recalls portable fan heaters

Home Depot U.S.A. Inc. of Atlanta, GA has recalled more than 100,000 of its Soleil-brand portable fan heaters manufactured in China.

According to the company, the heater’s plastic housing can melt, deform and catch fire during use, posing a fire and burn hazard to consumers. Home Depot reports that it has received 464 separate reports of the heaters melting, but no reports of injuries or property damage.

The recalled fan heaters were sold exclusively through Home Depot stores in the U.S. from September 2012 through May 2013 for about $15.
