CPSC, RMC Announce Retrofit of  CT-1200 Kerosene Heaters

WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), RMC International, Ltd. of Denver, Colo., is offering free replacement wick holders to owners of its model CT-1200 kerosene heaters. The original wick holders may fail during use, preventing the shutoff switch and tip-over safety mechanism from extinguishing the heater.

The tan metal heaters measure 18" by 21" by 11". The brand name and the model number CT-1200 appear on an identification plate on the front of the heater.

RMC CT-1200 kerosene heaters were sold through mass merchandizers and smaller retailers nationwide from June to November 1994 for approximately $110 under the brand names Dyna-Glo, Envirotemp and Keroheat.

Consumers should contact RMC at (800) 433-6042 to receive a free replacement wick holder.

Neither CPSC nor RMC has received any reports of accidents or incidents involving these heaters.

Media inquiries should be directed to Mike Resmo at (800) 433-6042.
