We notified our readers a few days ago of a recall for electric heaters that posed a fire risk. It turns out that wasn’t the only personal electric space heaters recall you should be aware of. After Home Easy, Shop LC also issued a recall for some of its electric heaters, citing the same fire risk. The Shop LC devices can overheat, which can lead to fire and burn accidents.

The Shop LC personal electric space heaters recall

Shop LC announced the recall earlier this month, a day after Home Easy action. As usual with consumer goods recalls, the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) shared the announcement.

The company initiated the recall after receiving two reports of electric heaters overheating. But there have been no injuries so far.

The electric space heaters recall involves several Shop LC models that can overheat. The devices are black or white with a gold grill, as seen in the images in this post. They were available individually or in sets of two.
