Please consult the photograph above for details of the products’ design and retail presentation. One additional photograph, showing the Heater’s product identification panel, is pictured on the Web site above.

According to the ACCC, the heating element may get excessively hot and cause some areas of the radiant heater panel to melt. In some cases, this may cause the RCD (i.e., the Heater’s safety switch) to trip instead. If this occurs, there is risk of burns or fire.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession the recalled Heaters, please do not use them. Instead, kindly contact Sitro Group Australia immediately to receive a replacement unit or to discuss an alternative remedy.

For further information, please call Sitro Customer Service Line on 1300 174 876 or e-mail at productsafety@sitro.com.au.
