According to a series of news agencies, BlueStar residential gas wall ovens are being recalled over a possible issue that could pose a fire risk to consumers.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has stated that these ovens may have been installed incorrectly, which could result in damages to the gas appliance connectors. The federal agency has reported that about 940 units of these devices were affected by this recall. The BlueStar gas-powered stainless steel wall ovens were manufactured prior to November of 2012. Up to this moment, the company has received one report of a fire, which has unfortunately resulted in property damage. Injuries were not reported.
Consumers with the product should check their ovens for the following model numbers: BWO24AGS, BWO24AGSL, BWO30AGS, BWO30AGSL, BWO36AGS and BWO36AGSL. If you or a loved one owns one of these ovens, contact the manufacturer and schedule a repair in order to prevent a potential incident that could result in either property damage or injuries.
Consumers should always stay on top of all recall announcements in order to prevent accidents that could have been avoided if the consumer had responded to the recall announcement promptly.
