Chapter Two of the cold snap in Middle Tennessee is here. Many folks will use space heaters to ward off the cold. If you do, check your make and model because the Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced Sears and Kmart have recalled 42,500 Kenmore oscillating fan heaters bearing model number 127.90914310. The model number can be found on a silver sticker on the bottom of the heater. The fans are being recalled due to reports of them smoking and catching fire. If you own one of these heaters, you should immediately discontinue use and return it to Kmart or Sears for a full refund.
Defective products are all too common. And when they harm innocent consumers, manufacturers should take all responsible steps including recalling the product and fairly compensating any injured customers for the harm caused by the defective product.
