Fire-risk halogen heater withdrawn

An electric halogen heater that poses a fire risk has been withdrawn from the market.
The Vega brand product, made in the Czech Republic, is dangerous because of the poor heat resistance of materials protecting live parts.

The heater does not comply with the Low Voltage Directive and the relevant European standard EN 60335.

The heater – model number 0653, serial number 12/05, EAN code 8590393051328 – is white and packed in an orange-yellow cardboard box with a picture of the product.
