Just when you thought it was safe, Stealth Pro Heaters (25W, 50W, 75W) Recall!!!
Saw this on a few other forums posted by different people. Looks like all the heater sizes that weren't in the last recall are in this one. Previous recall was for heaters 100w and up. This was sent by drsfostersmith, I have no't received anything from petsmart yet.

We're contacting you with important recall information regarding your Marineland Stealth Pro Heater (25W, 50W, 75W) purchased since October, 2009. United Pet Group (UPG) has determined that a wiring problem can cause the aquarium heaters to overheat or break during normal use, resulting in property damage and posing hazards to consumers.
As a valued customer, your safety and satisfaction is our priority. Please stop using your Marineland Stealth Heater and take the following steps:
1. Unplug the heater from the wall to stop the flow of electricity
2. Let the heater cool for 15 minutes
