Cadet and Encore Heater Recall Settlement Agreement

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has announced a provisional settlement regarding the previously recalled Cadet in wall electric heaters.

Under this agreement, it appears that replacement heater will be available from Consolidated Electrical Distributors Inc., the manufacturers of Cadet and Encore heaters.

Based upon my understanding, these replacement heaters may not be available right away, and will only be available from the manufacturer. The manufacturer seems to suggest that the old heater can be used until they are replaced. That is not my understanding of the CPSC findings. I agree with CPSC and urge that the recalled heaters be abandoned until replaced.
