A Prinetti-branded radiant heater sold through The Reject Shops nationwide has been recalled due a defect that could lead to a serious burn injury or electric shock.

Called the Prinetti 1000W Radiant Heater and with the model number NSB-C13 and the item number IA0160, the heater was sold in all regions between 1 May 2014 and 19 August 2014.

“Due to a manufacturing defect, insulation on the internal wiring of the product can get heat damaged from the heat of the metal reflector,” reports the ACCC Product Recalls website.

Affected customers are advised to immediately stop using this product and return it to their nearest The Reject Shop for a full refund.
