Perfection Kerosene Heaters

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Perfection Schwank (formerly Perfection Product Company) of Waynesboro, Georgia, had announced a retrofit program for Perfection Model 770 and Model 770-l portable kerosene heaters.

These kerosene heaters were originally manufactured for outdoor use only and do not contain a flame extinguishing device to extinguish the flames if the units are tipped over. Some consumers may be I using the units indoors where the risk of fire is much greater.

The units are black or beige in color, cylindrical in shape and originally sold for approximately $40.00 to $50.00 dollars. Consumers should check the identification label: on their heater for the model number. Consumers owning one of the heaters are urged to stop using it indoors.

Perfection Schwank (706-554-2101) is no longer offering the retrofit program. Consumers should not use these products. They should be discarded or destroyed.

The firm had agreed to label future production of these heaters and to use an industrial color on the units.

Consumers may obtain more information by calling the CPSC toll-free Hotline on 800-638-CPSC. A teletypewriter number for the hearing-impaired is 800-638-8270.
