Canadian home heating company Miles Industries is recalling more than 1,000 Valor H5 gas fireplaces due to a burn hazard.
About the Valor H5 Recall
According to the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the trim around the Valor H5 gas fireplace can leak hot exhaust air, which could lead to home damage and burn injuries.
There have been no documented injuries. But Miles Industries did receive a report of damage to a fireplace mantle as a result of the defective trim.
The affected fireplaces were sold at the following stores between June 2014 and March 2018:
- Northeast Hearth & Home
- Sutter Home & Hearth
- Wallace’s Stove & Fireplace Hearth
The fireplaces were sold both in the United States and Canada.
