According to a report from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Touch Point Oscillating Ceramic Heaters are being recalled due to a fire hazard. The affected ceramic heaters were imported by Meijer Inc., of Grand Rapids, Michigan, and manufactured in China. They were sold at Meijer stores, along with other retailers nationwide between October 2009 and April 2011. They continued to be sold even after the original recall was issued in November, 2010. The importer has received 2 reports of property damage as a result of fire. The hazard is found in the oscillating mechanism, which can short out; this poses a risk of fire. If you are using this defective product, it should be returned to a nearby Meijer store for a full refund. If the ceramic heater was purchased from another retailer, consumers should directly contact Meijer to arrange for a full refund. Defective products can lead to not only severe property damage but serious injuries. If you were injured as a result of a defective product, then you should seek legal counsel as soon as possible. A New York defective product attorney can help you pursue the compensation you need and deserve for your injuries and damages.
