About 34,000 space heaters are being recalled for spraying hot oil.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission has received approximately 40 reports of units that unexpectedly sprayed heated oil, resulting in reports of property damage involving damaged carpet and fabrics. No injuries were reported.
The heaters included in the recall are about 23 inches tall, 6 inches deep and 12 inches wide and have model number HOH3000 or HOH3000B printed on a label on the bottom of the product. This involves Holmes brand oil-filled heaters that are black or white in color.
The “Holmes” logo is near the power switch and temperature control. Products affected have a code on the heater plug blade within the following range: G192 through G298. No other codes are affected.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled heater, unplug it and contact Sunbeam for instructions on how to obtain a full refund.
The heaters were sold at Target and small department stores nationwide from August 2014 through November 2014 for about $50.
