Burn Hazard Prompts Recall of Honeywell Electric Heaters

20,000 Honeywell Surround Select Portable Heaters are being recalled due to burn hazards. According to reports, the internal housing may detach from the main unit and burn consumers.

The Honeywell Surround Select Portable Heaters were sold nationwide at Walmart, Best Buy, and Meijer stores. The recalled units were sold between July and December of 2011, nationwide. The recall affects Honeywell Surround Select Series portable electric heathers, model numbers HZ-420 / HZ-430 / HZ-440. The model number can be found on the bottom of the heather. In addition, any Honeywell Surround Select Series portable electric heaters with five digit date codes ending with an 11 as the last two digits have also been recalled. The date code can be found on the metal prongs of the electrical plugin. The affected models have a white or black cylinder, handle on top, and have the words Honeywell and Surround Heat printed on the front.

It is imperative that users stop using the Honeywell heaters immediately to prevent the risk of injury. Consumers using an affected heater should call Kaz (800) 370-8137 or visit www.kaz.com/recall for a full refund.

Products liability lawsuits revolving around electric blankets and space heaters are all too common. In a hurry to get a product to market, manufacturers fail to properly test the devices in the name of profit. If you have suffered a burn injury from a Honeywell Electric Heater or other electric device, contact a products liability lawyer to discuss the process of seeking recovery for you burn injury. It is also important to never throw the electrical unit or device away prior to speaking to a products liability attorney.  Call 314.409.7060 to discuss your products liability case.
