About 9,000 PackTite™ Heating Units for Bed Bug Control have been recalled by Nuvenco Inc., dba PackTite™, of Ft. Collins, Colo. The bed bug heaters can overheat, melt and cause a fire, posing a fire hazard. This recall involves PackTite bed bug heating units sold with PackTite™ original bed bug treatment systems. Consumers place items for bed bug treatment inside PackTite’s black canvas bag and turn the heater on inside the bag. The white heaters are attached to a black wire frame that fits in the bag. PackTite™ is printed in white on the bag. The bags measure 36 inches long by 19 inches wide by 24 inches tall. The recalled heaters do not have any visible text on the up-facing side of the heater casing, but they do have reset instructions on the underside of the heater. PackTite has received three consumer complaints of heaters overheating, melting and, in one case, the items being treated were singed. No injuries have been reported.
The units were sold by Pest control companies and pest control product distributors nationwide, including Atlantic Pest Solutions, Bedbug Central, Bedbug Supply, Broadway Exterminating, Dana Pest Control, Do My Own Pest Control, Grainger, M&M Environmental Isotech, K-9 Sweeps, Orkin, Pestaway, Round-the-Clock Pest Control, Steritech, Stern Environmental, Tallman Scientific, Univar and US Bedbugs from October 2009 through January 2013 for between $300 and $330 for the system and $53 for the heater when sold separately. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled heating units and contact PackTite for a free replacement heater.
