Walmart Recalls Heaters for Reports of Burns, Fire

| Dec 16, 2010

Walmart is recalling space heaters that could cause personal injuries or property damage from fires.

Nearly 2.2 million faulty electric heaters were recalled Thursday, according to Wal-Mart Stores Inc. There have already been reports of burn injuries and fires resulting in property damage, according to news reports.

The heaters involved in the recall are:

  • "Flow Pro,"
  • "Airtech,"
  • "Aloha Breeze"
  • "Comfort Essentials"

The products were sold at Walmart stores nationwide for about approximately $18 from December 2001 to October 2009, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. They are all 1,500-watt electric heaters with the model number 1013, which can be found on a label on the back panel.

"The heaters can malfunction and cause overheating, smoking, burning, melting and fire. Wal-Mart has received 21 reports of incidents, it said. Those included 11 reports of property damage beyond the heater, and four injuries. Three people needed medical care for minor burns and smoke inhalation," according to news reports.

As a North Charleston personal injury lawyer I urge consumers to check their space heaters to find out if they have this recalled product. This is a very serious recall that has already resulted in personal injuries and property damage.
