Brinkmann Has Recalled Outdoor Tabletop Propane Heaters

Dallas, TX (SafetyAlerts) - The Brinkmann Corporation has recalled 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
