In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Desa Heating Products of Bowling Green, Kentucky, U.S. voluntary recalled an estimated 54,500 of its 40,000 to 80,000 BTU Portable Propane Convection Heaters.

Consumers were advised to stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.

According to the company, the burners on the heaters can “flashback,” which is when fire burns inside the burner tube rather than out the end. This can cause the lower portion of the burner tube to get hot enough to ignite combustible material under the heater.

Desa has received 40 reports of incidents possibly caused by the flashback hazard, including six reports of fires. The other 34 reported incidents involved minor property damage, including scorching of the flooring under the heater. There have been no reports of injury.

The following model names and number are involved in this recall: Reddy Heater (RCP80VC), All-Pro (SPC-80CC), MASTER (TC80VC), Universal (80-CC), and Dayton (6BY73). The heaters have serial numbers between 017390000 and 017632220. The model and serial numbers are on the carton and on labels attached to the heater. The designation “Made in China” is on the carton and model label attached to the heater.

The heaters, manufactured in China, were sold at home centers and hardware stores throughout the U.S. from August 2005 through December 2005 for between U.S. $100 and $130.
