CPSC, Brinkmann Announce Recall of Outdoor Tabletop Propane Heaters

WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), The Brinkmann Corporation, of Dallas, Texas, is voluntarily recalling about 45,000 outdoor tabletop propane heaters. The heaters can emit high levels of carbon monoxide (CO), which poses a risk of CO poisoning to consumers.

Brinkmann received one report of a CO death involving the use of this outdoor heater inside of a camper.

The recalled Outdoor Tabletop Heaters are about 33 inches tall and operate with a disposable 1 lb. propane tank, commonly sold in outdoor and camping stores. The base of the heater has a label that reads "BRINKMANN OUTDOOR TABLETOP HEATER" and has the model number 883-1000-0. The heater also has 'mood lighting' around the base that is battery operated. These heaters were manufactured in China.

Retailers, including Wal-Mart, Menards, and Galyan's, sold these heaters from September 2001 through May 2002 at a range of prices up to $100, depending on the retail location.

Consumers should stop using the heaters immediately and call Brinkmann at (800) 675-5301 between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday to receive a full refund.
