The heaters can overheat and melt, posing a fire or electric shock hazard. Aproximately 70,500 units which were manufactured in China, were sold exclusively at at Big Lots stores nationwide from September 2010 through March of 2012 for around $20.00 for model #FH107A and $25.00 for model #PTC-902T.
