Marineland Heater Recall!

Decided this needed to be posted here. There has been a major voluntary recall of Marineland Stealth and Stealth Pro fish tank heaters. I would recommend that anyone who has this type of heater check out THIS LINK to see if their heater(s) are affected by the recall. There is a contact number at the bottom of the page if you would like further information on how to get a replacement/refund. The recall covers a very wide range of dates (2004-2011), so don't think if you have an older heater that you're not affected.

I realize this recall has been out for a while, but they just reposted it at the store I work at, so I thought it was worth reposting here.

i think it is good that you posted this just in case people didn't realize it. Do you know why they recalled the heater?

I have one that I have taken out. Does anyone know if this applies to Canada? Or where I could send it too?

I'm not sure since it was a US Product Safety Commission that issued the recall, but, since it's posted on the Marineland website, I would hope that they'd take care of their Canadian customers as well. Their contact number for the recall is (800)338-4896. All PetSmarts in the US are accepting returns/exchanges of the heaters, but I don't know if that includes the Canadian stores.

These heaters were recalled several months ago. Are they recalling them again?

@ Dramaqueen: I don't know if Marineland reissued the recall or not. I just know that PetSmart decided to put the flyer back up again. It's been an ongoing recall since March 2011.
