25 of those reports were in the United States and five were in Canada. Two of the reports included minor damage to power outlets. No incidents were reported in Mexico.

There were no injuries, however, the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission instructed all customers to stop using the heaters.

377,000 units were sold across North America, and Amazon is directly contacting all known buyers with instructions on how to receive a full refund.
