RECALL: 355,000 Optimus portable electric heaters

Posted: Updated:

The CPSC has issued a recall for 355,000 Optimus portable infrared radiant quartz electric space heaters.

The CPSC says the heater design can fail to prevent ignition of nearby combustible materials that come in contact with the unit, posing a fire hazard.

This recall involves two models of Optimus Infrared Quartz Radiant heaters with model numbers H-5210, produced in 2011 and H-5211, produced in 2012.

The model number and the year of production appear on a label on the back of the heater.

The recalled heaters are white and are approximately 12-inches wide, by 13-inches tall, by 6-inches deep.

"Optimus" is printed on the top left of the heater.

The control knob is located on the top right side of the heater.
