Minnesota-based Hearth & Home Technologies is recalling about 2,000 of its Quadra-Fire Mt. Vernon E2 Pellet Stoves and inserts over fears that the glass may break and cause laceration, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) reported on July 9.
The fuel from the defective product can back up and cause uneven combustion and pressure build-up inside the firebox, resulting in glass breakage. The company has already received eight reports associated with the issue. The affected stoves and inserts were listed on the CPSC site.
The products were made available between February 2014 and January 2015 at different stoves stores nationwide. Consumers are asked to contact the place of purchase for a free control board installation.
