The insert’s electrical wiring can touch a metal plate on the product and cause shocks and burns to home owners. So far, the company has received one report of injury.
The recalled inserts, made in the U.S., were sold at specialty fireplace and stove stores nationwide and in Canada from June 2010 through September 2012 for about $2,200.
If you own a recalled fireplace insert, stop using it, unplug it, and contact the store where you purchased it for a free repair.
