In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Mr. Heater, Inc. of Cleveland, OH, U.S. has recalled 55,000 Mr. Heater "Big Buddy" and "Tough Buddy" portable propane heaters.

Consumers were advised to stop using recalled products because the valve on the propane heaters can leak, posing a fire hazard if an ignition source is present. Mr. Heater has received 26 reports of propane leaks, although no injuries have been reported.

Only model number MH18B Mr. Heater "Big Buddy" and "Tough Buddy" propane heaters are included in the recall. The heaters are either black with yellow accents around the burner tiles or light gray with red accents around the burner tiles.

The units were manufactured in China and sold in U.S. home centers, sporting goods, and hardware stores from September 2004 through December 2004 for between U.S. $120 and $149.

Consumers were advised to contact Mr. Heater for instructions on receiving a replacement heater.
