Recall of the Week: Sunbeam oil-filled heaters due to scald hazard

Heater whiteSunbeam is recalling about 34,000 oil-filled heaters.

The oil-filled heaters can spray heated oil, posing a scald hazard, the company and U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said.

The firm has received about 40 reports of units that unexpectedly sprayed heated oil, resulting in reports of property damage involving damaged carpet and fabrics. No injuries reported.

This recall involves Holmes brand oil-filled heaters that are black or white in color. 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.

The “Holmes” logo is near the power switch and temperature control. Products affected have a code on the heater plug blade within the range G192 through G298. No other codes are affected.

The heaters were sold at Target and small department stores nationwide from August 2014 through November 2014 for about $50.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled heater, unplug it, and contact Sunbeam for instructions on how to obtain a refund, the company and commission advise.
