accidentally came into contact with the glass front of the fireplace and suffered severe, life-altering burns on his hands
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) November 23, 2012
The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than toddlers who suffer from severe Fireplace Burn. And yet, gossip and rumor-mongering aside, the real story here is being overlooked according to Sean Burke of AttorneyOne.
On November 8th, 2012, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a voluntary recall of electronically controlled Majestic, Monessen and Vermont Castings direct-vent and B-vent gas fireplaces and inserts. The reason is that a performance issue with a control component may prohibit the unit from lighting, though gas continues to flow, creating potential for fire hazard.
On October 8th, 2012 Herald Online published that the Hearth, Patio & Barbecue Association (HPBA) announced an industry-wide safety initiative for the protection of children and adults from burns resulting from touching glass fronts on gas fireplaces.
In August 2011, a suit filed in the USDC Colorado (case no. 1:11-cv-01526-RBJ-MJW) revealed that a 1-year old child, Stanton Smith, accidentally came into contact with the glass front of the fireplace and suffered severe, life-altering burns on his hands due to gas fireplace glass door defects.
