It’s that time of year again. People are bundling up inside and turning on the space heaters, which usually brings on a rash of heater-related fires and the recall of a few dozen space heater brands.
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission and Collins International Co. have recalled oscillating ceramic heaters (pictured below) sold at Menards retail stores due to a fire hazard caused by overheating.
About 20,000 units are being recalled. Please look out for 1500 watt oscillating ceramic heaters model EB38005. The heater has a white plastic housing with the name “Heat-Wave” in black on its top. A label on the bottom of the product contains the model and the control number “ETL 3090262.”
