At the time of the initial CPSC release, King of Fans Inc. had received 81 reports of incidents involving leaking oil and two reports of minor burns along with two reports of falls in the oil.

The units involved are the Maxi-Heatâ„¢ Electric Oil-Filled Radiator Heater, model number 70030, that was distributed by King of Fans Inc. of Fort Lauderdale, Fla. and manufactured in China that were sold at Home Depot stores in the Northeast and Midwest from October 2005 through November 2005 for about $35.
