San Diego, CA (PRWEB) October 19, 2012
The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than toddlers who suffer from severe Fire Place Burn. And yet, gossip and rumor-mongering aside, the real story here is being overlooked according to Sean Burke of AttorneyOne.
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. A consumer safety education campaign and a mandatory safety standard for new gas fireplaces manufactured after January 1, 2015 are included in the safety initiative. The 2012 Hearth Consumer Survey reveals that approximately 11 million households have a gas fireplace with a glass front.
On May 2nd 2011 a class action suit was filed (case no. 3:11-cv-02146-EDL) in federal court in Oakland contending that owners of Valor fireplaces have suffered economic loss because they will need to install safeguards on the fireplaces to prevent small children and infants from third-degree burns.
