CSA International Product Alert for Megaheat Brand Gas-Fired Construction Heaters

PAR 01-11 August 31, 2011

CSA International, a leading testing and certification organization, is alerting the public regarding Megaheat brand gas-fired construction heaters. These construction heaters have not been evaluated by CSA International and may have a potential for tipping over, resulting in fire or injury to the user.

There have been no reported injuries or fires related to these products.

The affected construction heaters were manufactured by Ningbo Level Fine Ceramics of China model numbers 604 with a single burner head and 605 with a double burner head. While the construction heater units are not marked with the CSA registered Certification Mark, the packaging does display the mark. The CSA Certification Mark on the packaging was included in error by the manufacturer and is not an indication of CSA Certification. If the products were tested and certified by CSA International, the Certification Mark would then be applied to the labeling attached to the construction heater units as well as the packaging. To our knowledge, these products were only offered for sale in the United States.
