About 355,000 Portable Infrared Radiant Quartz Electric Space Heaters have been recalled by Optimus Enterprise Inc., of Anaheim, Calif. The heater design can fail to prevent ignition of nearby combustible materials that come in contact with the unit, posing a fire hazard to the consumer. This recall involves two models of Optimus Infrared Quartz Radiant heaters with model numbers H-5210, produced in 2011, and H-5211, produced in 2012. The model number and the year of production appear on a label on the back of the heater. The recalled heaters are white and are approximately 12 inches wide by 13 inches tall by 6 inches deep. “Optimus” is printed on the top left of the heater. The control knob is located on the top right side of the heater.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled heaters and contact Optimus to request a free replacement heater. Consumers have the option of a comparable ceramic heater or new model quartz radiant heater, model H-5510, which will be available after August 2013. Contact Optimus Enterprise Inc. toll-free at 1-888-672-5832 from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. PT Monday through Friday, or online at www.optimusent.com.
