The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has announced the recall of BlueStar wall ovens, manufactured by Prizer Painter Stove Works, due to fire hazard. According to the agency, the wall oven may have been improperly installed and/or have damaged flexible gas appliance connectors, which pose a fire hazard. The manufacturing company had received one report of a fire, which resulted in property damage to the cabinet that held the oven. No injuries have been reported at this time.
There are about 940 units being recalled and involve all colors of three models of BlueStar gas-powered stainless steel wall ovens manufactured prior to November 23, 2012. Oven sizes include 24-, 30- and 36-inche wide units. The model numbers affected can be found on the CPSC’s website. Model numbers and date codes are located on the rating plate inside the control panel.
The Virginia Injury Lawyer Perspective:
The CPSC is advising consumers to immediately stop using the recalled ovens, contact BlueStar for instructions on identifying affected units and to schedule a repair. If you’ve had an incident either directly related to this product recall or involve a different hazard with the same product, file a report on SaferProducts.gov. You should also contact a Virginia personal injury attorney if either you or a family member has been hurt by this product, or any recalled product.
