In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Vermont Castings, Majestic Products (VCMP), of Ontario, Canada, is recalling about 3,900 space heaters. Overheating inside the space heaters can cause the exterior to become extremely hot, posing fire and burn hazards to consumers.

VCMP has received three reports of the space heaters overheating, resulting in scorched floors and wall coverings. No injuries have been reported.
