Electric Heaters, Floor Lamps Recalled

A couple of home furnishing products recalled this month affect thousands of consumers, as reported on AboutLawsuits.com. Here’s a heads-up if you own either a Honeywell portable electric heater or a Big Lots floor lamp.

The Honeywell recall affects about 19,000 Surround Select portable electric heaters. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), their internal housing (the fan, heating element and circuitry) can detach, exposing consumers to a burn hazard. So far, no injuries have been reported.

The heaters were sold at Best Buy, Meijer and Wal-Mart stores nationwide last year for $50 to $70. Consumers who have these heaters should stop using them immediately, unplug them and can contact the manufacturer, Kaz USA, Inc., for a full refund. Call Kaz at (800) 370-8137 or visit its website for recall information.
