The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Rettig Belgium NV of Belgium, announced a voluntary recall of Radson Wall-Mounted Radiators. The panel radiators can come loose from the wall and fall on people near them.

There are about 36 units in the United States, 113,000 worldwide. No injuries have been reported in the United States, but there have been 52 incidents reported outside the country, including one that involved the death of a child in Belgium.

The recalled radiators are used to heat a home and are mounted vertically to the wall. The recall involves the Radson Vertical 20 and 21, Radson Kos V21 and Radson Faro V21. They were sold by plumbing and heating supply companies from October 2007 through January 2008 for between $300 and $700.

Consumers should avoid standing or sitting near the recalled radiators and contact their plumbing or heating supplier or Rettig for a free replacement suspension system.

For additional information, contact Rettig at 866/963-1477 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Eastern Monday through Friday, or visit the firm’s Web site at www.radson-replacementaction.com.
