CPSC, Jade Products Inc. Announce Recall of Dynasty Gas Ranges
WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Jade Products Inc., of Los Angeles, Calif., is recalling about 3,300 Dynasty gas ranges. The igniters are too far from the burners, which can cause a delayed ignition of gas. The large amount of gas released can cause fire to escape from the oven, putting consumers at risk of burn injuries and house fires.
Jade Products has received three reports of minor burn injuries when consumers have opened the oven door just as the gas ignited and flames escaped from the oven.
The recalled Dynasty gas ranges are model numbers DGRSC and DGR(c), with serial numbers from 050198-A through 280200-Z. The serial plate, which contains the model and serial numbers, is located under the right burner grate support on model DGRSC, and under the left burner grate (on the left side wall) on model DGR(c). Consumers must remove the burner grill to see the serial plate. The range is 30-, 36-, 48-, or 60-inches wide. "Dynasty" is printed on the lower right corner of the oven door.
Department and appliance stores sold these ranges nationwide from January 1998 through February 2000 for between $2,900 and $8,900.
Consumers should stop using these ranges immediately and call Jade Products toll-free at (888) 607-5694 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday for a free replacement burner.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risk of injury or death associated with the use of thousands of types of consumer products. Deaths, injuries, and property damage from consumer product-related incidents cost the nation more than $1 trillion annually. CPSC's work to ensure the safety of consumer products has contributed to a decline in the rate of injuries associated with consumer products over the past 50 years.
Federal law prohibits any person from selling products subject to a Commission ordered recall or a voluntary recall undertaken in consultation with the CPSC.
