Kaz USA, Inc. of Southborough, MA is recalling about 19,000 Honeywell-brand portable electric heaters manufactured in China.
According to the company, the heater’s internal housing, including the fan, heating element and circuitry, can detach, posing a burn hazard to consumers. Kaz reports that it has not yet received any reports of incidents or injuries related to the recalled heaters, but has initiated the recall to minimize the risk of possible future injuries.
The defective heaters were sold in Best Buy, Meijer and WalMart stores nationwide from July through December 2011 for between $50 and $70.
