In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, CE North America has expanded the recall of its KUL fan heaters to include its small, white portable fan heaters. KUL black units were involved in the previous recall in February.
The recall was prompted by one report of the fan heaters overheating and catching fire. No injuries or property damage have been reported.
About 8,500 units are affected by the recall. The heaters were exclusively sold at H-E-B grocery stores in Texas from September 2015 through December 2015 for $15. The KUL logo is printed on the front bottom of the heaters next to the power dial. The fan heater measures 9-inches long by 5-inches wide by 10.5-inches tall and weighs two pounds. An adhesive label is on the bottom of the heater with model number KU39221 and date 0715 in the lower right-hand corner.
Consumers are advised to immediately stop using the recalled fan heaters and contact CE North America for a refund.
