Space Heater Recall
Whitehorse – The Whitehorse Fire Department is advising residents of a product recall for certain Seabreeze Smart Thermaflo™ Heaters.
The wall-mountable heaters with the model number SF14TA and UPC 063635001439 pose a fire hazard and residents should immediately discontinue use of this product.
The Whitehorse Fire Department has already responded to a fire that was found to be caused by this specific heater. The safety cut-offs may not operate and allow the heater to rapidly overheat, posing a fire hazard.
These heaters were sold in Canada between August 2015 and May 2017.
