Good Morning,

My name is [REDACTED] and I purchased the Fan-Forced Heater (Model:HF-0020T) from Wal-Mart (http://pelonis.com/forced.htm) . I was wondering if there was a recall on this product. I ask this because I suffered a burn on my foot from this heater. I use this heater at work, in an office area. I keep the unit on the floor pointed a good distance from my feet. One morning, I woke up with a blister on my foot and went to urgent care, I was informed that it was due to a burn. This surprised me because I am not sensitive to heat. They asked me have a dropped anything hot on my foot (which I havent) and I informed them that the only thing hot that comes anywhere near my feet is my heater. They immediately informed me that thats what cause the burn on my foot. With a burn blister, I just have to wait for it to run its course and use an ointment once it opens. I didnt want this to happen to anyone else, its quite painful and cost me 8 sicks hours at work. I am Anemic and I'm always cold in public places, I purchased this unit after my old one broke. I attempted to contact the company, the first email had no response. I attemted to resend to the same email address and it kept bouncing back saying it's no longer active



Thank you,
[REDACTED]
