In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Lakewood Engineering & Mfg. Co. of Chicago, IL, U.S. has recalled 70,000 oil-filled electric radiator heaters

Consumers were advised to stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed, as welds in the products can rupture, expelling hot oil that can burn nearby consumers. Lakewood is aware of 28 reports of incidents, including one burn injury from spewing oil. An additional 14 heaters with ruptured welds have been returned to Lakewood.

The recalled heaters are Model 5101 portable electric radiator-style heaters with six fins, one of which has the control panel attached to it. The units are grayish-white in color and were manufactured in the U.S.

The models were sold at retailers across the U.S., including Wal-Mart and Ace Hardware, from August 2004 through Nov. 13, 2004 for between U.S. $34 and $40.
