WASHINGTON D.C. - The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), in cooperation with DESA Heating Products and Scheu Manufacturing Co., announced a voluntary recall of the All-Pro, Reddy Heater, and Master Infrared (Tank Top) propane heaters.

According to CPSC, the plastic ring on the heater's regulator can crack, causing gas to leak out if the propane tank and heater regulator are turned on. This can create a fire hazard if an ignition source is present. The firms have received four reports of incidents involving minor burns to the hand and two cases of minor property damage.

This recall involved only heaters made in China with the serial numbers between 016,000,000 and 016,159,999. Consumers should stop using this heater immediately and return it to the location of purchase. For more information, visit
