CE North America of Miami, Fla., is expanding its recall of KUL fan heaters by 8,500 in addition to the 28,000 recalled in February 2016.
The fan heaters can overheat, posing a fire hazard.
The company has received one consumer report of the fan heaters overheating and catching on fire. No injuries or property damage have been reported.
This recall involves KUL small, white portable fan heaters with the KUL logo printed on the front bottom of the heaters next to the power dial. The fan heater measures about 9 inches long by 5 inches wide by 10.5 inches tall and weighs about two pounds.
An adhesive label is on the bottom of the heater with model number "KU39221" and "Date: 0715" in the lower right-hand corner. KUL black units were involved in the previous recall.
The fans, manufactured in China, were sold exclusively at H-E-B grocery stores in Texas from September 2015, through December 2015, for about $15.
