Heater and Air Conditioner Recall Lawyers

The burn injury lawyers at SHOOP | A PROFESSIONAL LAW CORPORATION again warn consumers of a recent, voluntary product recall initiated by the Goodman Company in conjunction and cooperation with the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission ("CPSC"). 

The Company is recalling its various, air conditioning and heating units due to associated fire and burn injury hazards. The CPSC recommends and advises that consumers immediately cease the use of this product unless otherwise instructed. Bear in mind also that it is a federal offense to sell - or otherwise attempt to resell - a recalled consumer product.

For product identification purposes, the formal name of this recalled product is Amana, Century, Comfort-Aire, Goodman and York International Packaged Terminal Air Conditioner and Heater Pump ("PTAC") units.

The product defect associated with these various units involves the power cords on the heating and air conditioning units which have the potential and capacity to overheat, thereby posing obvious fire and burn injury hazards. There are an estimated 233,500 such units currently in distribution within the United States.

For product identification purposes, the subject recall includes the Century, Amana, Goodman, Comfort-Aire and York-brand Heat Pumps and Terminal Air Conditioners. These recalled products are 230 / 208 volt and are regularly installed within the walls of motels, apartment buildings, hotels and various such commercial spaces for purposes of climate control. For additional product identification purposes, these recalled products are beige in color, and carry the following serial number ranges:0701009633 - 0804272329.
