30,000 Gas Ranges Recalled Due to Risk of Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
This follows 44 reports of carbon monoxide emissions from the ranges, and at least three people requiring medical treatment.
Approximately 30,000 gas ranges are being recalled due to possible carbon monoxide poisoning, according to the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (USCPSC).
After an initial recall for 28,000 ZLINE 30- and 36-inch gas ranges in December, a recall for ZLINE 48-inch ranges was issued on January 26. Consumers are being asked to stop using the oven compartment until the recalled ranges are repaired. The range tops are unaffected and may be operated safely.
“The oven of the gas ranges can emit dangerous levels of carbon monoxide (CO) while in use, posing a serious risk of injury or death from carbon monoxide poisoning,” the USCPSC statement says.
Which Ranges Were Recalled?
ZLINE has received 44 reports of carbon monoxide emissions from the gas ranges, according to the USCPSC, including three people who needed medical attention. The ranges were sold for $2,300 to $6,900, online and in retail locations, between February 2019 and December 2022 by the following vendors:
- Best Buy;
- The Home Depot;
- The Range Hood Store;
The latest recalled model numbers are RG48, RGS-48, and RGB-48. ZLINE recalled model numbers RG30, RGS-30, RGB-30, RG36, RGS-36 and RGB-36 last month. The model number is printed on a label on the back or underneath the right side of the range top, visible when the oven door is open.
According to USCPSC, the impacted ZLINE ranges have the company logo printed on the bottom of the door. The doors are black matte; blue gloss; blue matte; DuraSnow; red gloss; red matte; and white matte. Multiple finishes include stainless steel, black stainless steel and DuraSnow, along with a cloudy steel finish.
The recalled ranges were manufactured in China, according to USCPSC.
How to Get Your Gas Range Repaired
More than 100,000 people in the U.S. are treated in emergency rooms for CO poisoning each year, and at least 420 die, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
