WALKER, Mich- Meijer is recalling more than 4,500 heaters after one caused a fire. The Walker-based retailer is asking customers to bring back the Touch Point Baseboard Convection Heater (Model BBC-1500) for a full refund. They are black and measure about 30-inches long by 6-inches deep by 12-inches high.

The $50 heaters can overheat, causing a fire hazard, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, which announced the recall on Wednesday.

Consumers are being asked to immediately stop using the recalled heaters and return the product to a Meijer customer service desk for a full refund.

The heaters were sold exclusively at Meijer stores from September 2011 through February 2013.
