Oscillating Fan Heaters Recalled

The Consumer Product Safety Commission announced Thursday Sears and Kmart are recalling Kenmore oscillating fan heaters because broken motor mounts can cause the units to overheat and catch fire.

Sears and Kmart have received seven reports of the fan heaters smoking or catching fire, including two reports of injuries, according to the CPSC.

CPSC says consumers should immediately turn off and unplug the recalled fan heaters and return them to any Sears or Kmart store for a full refund.
