Urgent - Big Buddy Heater Caution

Recommended Posts

WKSparrow

Just got off the phone with the Mr. Heater company... the new (just released this fall) BIG Buddy heater has been pulled from the store shelves b/c of a potential safety issue... and those who already own them should stop using immediately...

THIS DOES NOT CONCERN THE "LITTLE" BUDDY HEATER - those are fine!!!

Thought I should post this since it's gonna be so cold this weekend.

WK is right, I talked with a rep from Mr. Heater as well and she let me know that they have filed with the Consumer Product Safety Com. about this and were hoping to hear back around Feb. 1 but for the time being you should stop using this unit. Something to do with a valve made in China.

The number on their website is incorrect and the new one is 216-916-3000 so if you own a unit I would suggest calling them to get a on distribution list so they can notify you of the outcome and what you can do to get it fixed/replaced.

I just read this today and called up to my Dad who was at this time (4:20ish pm) and he was backing up to his fish shack on URL to let him know not to use it if he had it. Whew!!!

Good Luck fishing to all and stay warm without the Big Buddy for the time being.

      I got a good idea........maybe have a couple more beers and not worry so much about your neighbors. In fact invite them over for a dinner and a beer and discuss your issues...that's how my neighborhood settles issues.  Man to man...works out pretty good....

      Send him some literature on CWD. Like FishingCT mentioned, disease spreads at common gathering points where deer may rub noses. CWD, for example, spreads through a prion or protein that can spread this way.  This spread of disease is an example of why disease in raised herds is such a big deal.

      Feeding deer, especially in the winter, is a really good way to spread disease. Maybe you won't have to worry about them as much next winter after all

      Because I'm sure he was serious about Molotov cocktails.  Is there an eyeroll button?

      I agree with your neighbor , it isn't a big deal , your grass will grow back , and my guess is with the spring rains , all poop pellets will disintegrate and be totally gone soon , if they are not already gone ..  my question is what the heck are you planning to do with Molotov cocktails ?  If I saw you toss one at the deer , I would be calling that CO , and he WOULD have something to write YOU a ticket for . .  And if you flung one onto my property , well let's just say you would have a big issue to deal with yourself ,, that would be me !!! My suggestion is to just relax ..

      Fence and pressure from the neighborhood is your best best until there is a law against it. Good luck.

      A letter from all the neighbors or a neighborhood meeting with him sounds like a good first thing to try. Maybe he'll get the hint. Better than war.
