Wall-Mounted Radiators Recalled by Rettig Belgium Due to Crush Hazard

The Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Rettig Belgium NV, of Belgium, have announced a voluntary recall of some Radson Wall-Mounted Radiator.

The recall involves the Radson Vertical 20 and 21, Radson Kos V21, and Radson Faro V21, of which 36 were sold in the United States and 113,000 worldwide through plumbing and heating supply companies from October 2007 through January 2008 for between $300 and $700. Manufactured in Belgium, the radiators are used to heat a home and are mounted vertically to the wall. The radiator can come loose from the wall, and fall on people near it.

There have been 52 incidents reported outside the United States, including one that involved the death of a child in Belgium. No injuries were reported in the United States.

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