Nashville, TN– About 3,200 Lennox Shadowdance Natural Gas Log Set Burner Assemblies have been voluntarily recalled by Lennox Hearth Products LLC and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) for risks of carbon monoxide poisoning. The CPSC announced the product recall on March 1, 2011.
The product recall was initiated after discovering that a crack can develop at the gas valve connection, allowing natural gas to leak when the burner is in use, which poses a risk of carbon monoxide poisoning.
“This recall involves gas burners sold with Lennox brand Shadowdance natural gas log set burner assemblies. The product is used in a wood-burning fireplace or a ventless firebox enclosure. The assemblies were sold under model numbers LSVFSD-18, LSVFSD-24 and LSVFSD-30, and include a burner and ceramic-fiber log set. Replacement gas burners also were sold separately under model number LSVFSD-NG. Burners included in this recall have serial numbers that begin with 6407, 6408, 6409 and 6410A through 6410G. The burner’s model and serial numbers are printed on a metal identification plate attached to the burner,” according to the CPSC press release.
Consumers are advised to contact Lennox to arrange for a free replacement of the burner.
For more information concerning the product recall, consumers can contact Lennox Hearth Products at (800) 299-0027 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, or visit their website at http://www.lennoxhearthproducts.com.
