WASHINGTON (AP) -- It's summertime, but there's a recall on some electric heating units.
Vornado Air Circulation Systems is recalling its portable electric room heaters because of a faulty connection that can spark a fire.
The models included in the recall are about a foot tall and bear the numbers: 180-V-H, V-H, E-V-H or D-V-H -- or the product name Intellitemp.
The government advises consumers to stop using the heaters and contact the company for free shipping and repairs.
