About 13,000 Touch Point Oscillating Ceramic Heaters have been recalled by the importer Meijer Inc., of Grand Rapids, Mich. Originally, 6,700 were recalled in November 2010. The oscillating mechanism in the heaters can short out, posing a fire hazard to consumers. Meijer has received two reports of incidents involving fires that resulted in property damage. No injuries have been 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. The heaters were sold at Meijer stores in Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan and Ohio from October 2009 through April 2011 for about $25. Discount retailers, dollar stores, flea markets and retail liquidators nationwide sold the heaters from November 2010 through April 2011 for various prices. The heaters were sold after the original recall was announced in November 2010.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled heaters and return them to the nearest Meijer retail store for a full refund of the purchase price. Consumers who purchased heaters from other retailers should contact Meijer to arrange a refund.
