Additional information:
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports this recall involves certain One Stop Gardens Tank Top Propane Heaters marketed, sold and delivered in the United States, as follows:

  • One Stop Gardens 15,000 BTU Tank Top Propane Heaters, sold with an item 63073
  • One Stop Gardens 30,000 BTU Tank Top Propane Heaters, sold with an item 63072

The recalled Heaters are designed to mount on top of a standard 20-pound Propane Tank, and have an “easy start” with variable heat control valve, high efficiency heat reflector and safety shutoff.

Please consult the photograph above for details of the product’s packaging, design and retail presentation. Additional images of the recalled Tank Top Propane Heater can be found on the Web site listed above.

==> No barcodes, UPCs, best-before date codes, manufacturing date codes, production dates, expiry dates, regulatory approval designations, registration numbers, agency approval designations or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.

According to the CPSC, in windy weather, the Heater’s flame can be directed to the rear of the unit. If this defect occurs, it can melt the Tip Switch Safety Shut Off feature at the rear of the Heater. This poses a risk that the Heater will not turn off if it tips over and poses consequential burn, fire and smoke inhalation risks to people who subsequently utilize the product in a reasonable manner expected with its intended design and anticipated use.

Proposed Remedy:
If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled One Stop Gardens Tank Top Propane Heaters, please do not use them. Instead, kindly return them to your local Harbor Freight Tools store for a full refund of the purchase price, plus applicable tax, in the form of a Harbor Freight Tools gift card. Harbor Freight Tools is also said to be contacting all known purchasers directly.

==> If you have a medical emergency, please contact 9-1-1, your closest hospital or emergency center equipped to properly burns, smoke inhalation and/or respiratory collapse.
