Vornado Air Recalls 5,000 Cribside Nursery Space Heaters That Pose Fire and Burn Hazards
The affected space heaters were sold at Bed Bath & Beyond, buybuy Baby, and other stores nationwide
Vornado Air says that around 5,000 Sunny CS (cribside) nursery space heaters pose fire and burn hazards to consumers. As a result, these space heaters are being recalled by the company.
What's the problem?
Inside the affected heaters, a broken motor mount can allow the electric heating element to make contact with interior plastic materials. This could ignite a fire.
