Weather Works Inc. (Miami, FL, U.S.), in cooperation with The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, has announced the voluntary recall of 2,400 Ventilaire electric heaters.

According to the manufacturer, the electric heaters can overheat internal plastic components and damage the wiring, posing a fire and electrocution hazard to consumers. Weather Works has received one report of a heater smoking and starting a fire, though no injuries were reported. Consumers have been advised to stop using the recalled products immediately, unless otherwise instructed.

The portable electric heaters, which were manufactured in China, are beige and are constructed of a plastic housing. The appliances have the "Weather Works" logo printed on the front side of the fan, and on the base of the unit is a sticker reading, "Model No. CH-601, AC 120V - 60Hz, 1500 Watts, Made in China, 4H39."

The heaters were sold at retail chain stores in Florida from June 2002 through March 2003 for about U.S. $20.
