TORONTO, Sept. 14 /CNW/ - Canadian Tire is voluntarily recalling the Patton Utility Heater (Canadian Tire product number 43-5956). It has been determined that the product may have a defect where the unit may overheat, causing the outer plastic housing to melt and produce smoke.
While Canadian Tire has not been notified of any instance of injury, it is requested that customers immediately discontinue use of the product and return it to their nearest Canadian Tire store for a refund. These products were sold at Canadian Tire from September 2008 through June 2009.
Products included in this recall will have two identifying features:
1. The product will have a date code on the side of the prong of the plug that falls between A186DH through to A322DH. If the date code identified does not fall between A186DH through A322DH the product is NOT included in the recall and the customer can continue to use as directed.
2. Once it has been determined that the product contains a date code that falls between A186DH through A322DH, customers should examine the silver rating label located on the back of the product. If the product does NOT have a round green sticker on the rating label it is included in this recall and should be returned to Canadian Tire for a full refund.
Regardless of the date code, products with a round, green sticker on the rating label are NOT included in this recall and the customer can continue to use as directed.
If unsure if a product is included in this recall, please call Jarden Consumer Solutions at 1-800-333-1930.
