Target heater recalled around the country over fire fears

An oil column heater sold at Target stores around Australia has been recalled over fears it may overheat.

In a recall notice posted to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission website, the retail giant urged people to stop using the Target 11 Fin Oil Column Heater, model TAROC011F, immediately.

“A manufacturing defect may cause the heater control panel to overheat, melt or catch on fire,” the notice reads.


“Customers should immediately stop using the product and return it to a Target or Target
Country store for a full refund.”


The heaters were sold at Target Australia Stores including Target Country and Online Stores
from Apr 2015 to Oct 2016.
