With some of the extremely cold temperatures we've had this winter, it's understandable to feel the need to place some space heaters around your home. If one of those places is the nursery or your kids' room and you are using a Sunny crib side space heater, we have some information you need to know.

According to the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission, Vornado has issued a voluntary recall of their Sunny Cribside Space Heaters due to fire and burn hazards. Apparently, a broken motor mount can allow the electric heating element to come into contact with some of the plastic parts internally and ignite. So, far they have received reports of 5 heaters catching fire.

These heaters were sold at retailers nationwide such as Bed, Bath and Beyond, and Amazon from October 2017 to December 2017 for about $100. They measure approximately 12 inches tall and say 'Vornadobaby' on the side.
