This recall involves PackTite bed bug heating units sold with PackTite™ original bed bug treatment systems.  Consumers place items for bed bug treatment inside PackTite’s black canvas bag and turn the heater on inside the bag. The white heaters are attached to a black wire frame that fits in the bag. PackTite™ is printed in white on the bag. The bags measure 36 inches long by 19 inches wide by 24 inches tall.  The recalled heaters do not have any visible text on the up-facing side of the heater casing, but they do have reset instructions on the underside of the heater.
