VANCOUVER, WA — On February 17, 2000, in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Cadet announced a recall of approximately 1.9 million in-wall electric heaters under the Cadet and Encore brand names.

Cadet is still conducting an ongoing recall and has released a list of heaters that are affected. The company is recalling several models of electric heaters regardless of manufacturer or purchase date. The recalled units have the following letters in the model number: FW, FX, LX, TK, ZA, Z, RA, RK, RLX, RW, RX, and ZC.

According to the CPSC, these heaters may be defective and could overheat, fail, catch fire, and spew flames and molten particles. Cadet and the CSPC continue to urge customers to participate in the recall if they have not done so already. Participation deadline is February 17, 2002.
