An oil heater has been recalled from Coles Supermarkets after it was discovered it has the potential to emit an odour capable of causing nausea in those nearby.
The Dome Five Fin Oil Heater (JY-1000XLb), from supplier HE Group Pty Ltd, has been sold nationally at Coles Supermarkets.
According to the ACCC’s dedicated Product Recalls website, this heater has “units [that] may rupture when turned on and allow oil to leak out”, and that, “The oil may leak and emit an odour which may cause users to become nauseous”.
Affected consumers are advised to immediately stop using this heater and return to the nearest Coles Supermarket for a full refund.
