New - Recall 'Sticky'

While there are not a lot of 'recalls' of dangerous products in our hobby, on occasion there are and we have decided that it would be best if we added a new 'sticky' to the General Discussion Forum for these recalls.
(Thanks to House of Laughter for this great suggestion!)


What is a 'sticky'? ...as some may not be familiar with the term..on the top of many forums here are Threads that contain important information related to the forum they are attached to. For Example..in the Fish Forum there are Stickys about certain fish diseases and specific types of fish. On the 'Reefs for Beginners' forum there is a lot of information that first time reefers should be familiar with!

To access our 'Stickys' you need to use the drop down menu on the 'Forums' menu on the Blue info bar under the scrolling banner ads.

The Sticky that is being added today is not new news, but is information that some folks are not familiar with (someone was trying to sell this item here today and we deleted that thread due to the danger of the product)

THESE ARE THE RECALLS YOU WILL FIND ON THIS THREAD AND THE POST # YOU WILL FIND THEM IN:

MARINELAND STEALTH HEATER RECALL (POST #1)
http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prhtml11/11202.html

KENT CARBON RECALL (POST # 12)
http://reefbuilders.com/2012/02/23/k...carbon-recall/


Thanks and Happy & Safe Reefing!

This is a helpful thread for many new hobbyists so that they can be aware of some of the products that they are purchasing.
However I feel pertinent product recall information like this should be broadcast through PMs or Emails with links to members when new recall info is provided.
Well at least links to the updated post info.

This Sticky is a great idea!
I actually have a Stealth Pro in my system and didn't know about the recall until I just saw it here

Fortunately it is plugged into my Apex as my backup heater set to come on at a lower temp if my main heater fails. So it hasn't had power to it in a long time.

Wow, this thread caught my eye and I'm glad it did. I have a StealthPro 200w that started heating my tank to 84+ degF. Now I know why. I did stop using it when I noticed the temp spike, bought a different htr. Thanks.
