Since June 2011, Health Canada has received 24 reports of incidents from consumers and retailers regarding the use of these thermostats including overheating, melting, smoke and damage to the wall. No injuries have been reported.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession the recalled Thermostats, please remove them with the assistance of a licensed electrician, as necessary.

Please contact the retailer from whom you purchased the product for any refunds as the importer is no longer in business.

Immediately dispose of the recalled Thermostat in accordance with local municipal hazardous waste requirements taking care to wear appropriate personal protective equipment (“PPE”) such as a mask and gloves.
