If you’ve bought a portable heater from Walmart in the last eight years you may want to make sure this isn’t the one in your home.

Walmart is recalling 2.2 million Flow Pro, Airtech, Aloha Breeze & Comfort Essentials Heaters because they may malfunction.

There have been 21 reports of the heaters overheating, smoking, burning, melting and fires including 11 reports of property damage. Four people were injured.

The heaters are grey with a metal handle on the top and the model number is 1013 can be found on a lable on the lower left corner of the back panel of the heater. They were sold at Walmart between December 2001 and October 2009 for about $18.

If you have one, stop using it and return it to any Walmart store for a full refund.

Call Walmart at (800) 925-6278 between 7 a.m. and 9 p.m. CT Monday through Friday.
