Meijer has received one report of a unit’s base burning, melting and damaging the carpet beneath it. No injuries have been reported.┬áThe air heater’s exposed and unshielded electrical components can cause the unit to overheat and melt, posing a fire hazard.

This recall presents a potential avenue of recovery about which subrogation professionals should be aware when evaluating fires in residential and commercial losses.
