In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC), Lasko Products, Inc. of West Chester, PA, is recalling approximately 1.2 million ceramic heaters manufactured in 2005. Localized heating may occur in the power cord where the cord enters the base of the unit, creating a potential fire hazard.
