Propane fireplaces recalled due to laceration hazard

June 27, 2014 By    

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) issued a recall on two Napoleon propane fireplaces from Canadian manufacturer Wolf Steel Ltd. According to CPSC, a laceration hazard exists because pressure from ignition of the gas can cause the glass front to break. An incident was reported in Canada, where glass shattered and resulted in cuts to a person’s face and neck that required medical attention. No incidents were reported in the United States, according to CPSC.

The models recalled are Napoleon’s GD3200-P and GD3200B-P. CPSC indicates 600 fireplaces are located in the United States and another 2,400 are in Canada. They were sold at specialty stores between 1992 and 2001, according to a press release.
