Gas Fireplace Recalls Due to Explosion Hazards

The burn injury lawyers at SHOOP | A PROFESSIONAL LAW CORPORATION remind consumers of a voluntary product recall involving three manufacturers of gas fireplaces, Ambiance, Stellar Hearth and Kozy Heat. These fireplace inserts and gas fireplaces are being recalled in conjunction and cooperation with the United States Consumer Products Safety Commission ("CPSC"). 

The product defect associated with these various gas fireplace units involves the primary control devices, which allow gas to release and then collect in the area in which the burner is located, thereby posing obvious and unacceptable risks of explosion and explosion-related injuries and hazards.

There are approximately13,000 such units currently in distribution within the continental United States, and another 2,170 in Canada. For product identification purposes, this product recall implicates the Hussong Manufacturing gas fireplaces and related, fireplace inserts which utilize the "American Flame" brand control devices. These various, recalled units comprise twenty-two production models retailing with the brand name of "Ambiance Fireplaces," "Kozy Heat Fireplaces," and "Stellar Hearth."

For further product identification purposes, model numbers, units and related serial numbers are listed, below:

Hussong has already received multiple reports from the field with regard to product failures, inclusive of explosion events which have caused personal injury and extensive property damage. These reports were consonant with the scope of the recall as these explosions occurred subsequent to gas released prematurely from the unit and collecting at the burner, then exploding.

These various fireplace were sold at retail from various dealers and distributors ranging in time from approximately October of 2009 to April of 2013, selling at price points between $1,400 and $3,300. Hussong Manufacturing Co. was responsible for product manufacture.
