ZLINE announced a voluntary recall of their gas range ovens due to high risks of carbon monoxide poisoning from gases emitting dangerous levels of carbon monoxide, which can cause injury or death if inhaled. The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) initiated the recall on January 26, 2023.
The CPSC updated the recall on Nov. 21, 2023, to include additional consumer options and remedies for the ZLINE ovens. The announcement also reiterated the serious risks of injury or death from carbon monoxide poisoning.
Before the recall, ZLINE received 44 reports of ovens emitting carbon monoxide, including three reports of consumers needing medical attention. After the January 2023 recall, ZLINE received 131 reports that the ovens were not repaired adequately and were still emitting dangerous levels of carbon monoxide.
What is carbon monoxide poisoning?
