    BURNABY, BC and BRAMPTON, ON, May 12 /CNW/ - CSA mandated retesting found
that there may be a potential fire hazard to the Paramount brand product sold
2006 - 2008, (Models: MS-1500-WOIRPH AND LIP-15-TGG-SP). If a flammable
material is draped over the heating unit for an extended period of time there
potentially may be ignition of the flammable material causing fire. Please
note, this announcement is not in response to any actual incident, as none
have been reported to date. It is a proactive response by Houston Tech Co and
J&R Home Products Ltd. to the retesting results.
    The manufacturer has created a simple to install Safety Upgrade kit,
which easily corrects any potential risk. The safety upgrade kit consists of
two bolt-on items:
    1)  Heater Head Angle Restrictor - restricts the maximum angle of the
        heater head.
    2)  Safety Arms - act as a deflector to protect against any flammable
        material being draped over the heater head.
