Ortal Issues Recall on Gas Fireplaces Due to Risk of Fire Hazard

There is a recall for the Traditional 90 and Traditional 110 Gas Fireplaces by Ortal due to heat release and ventilation issues, which can lead to a fire. The issues have been traced to improper installation, which may be remedied by a retrofit plate. However, consumers will need to contact Ortal to verify that their fireplace is installed on the floor or on a wooden base. If so, the manufacturer will install the retrofit plate at no charge to the customer. In the meantime, affected consumers should stop using the fireplaces immediately.

It’s worth noting that there have been at least 4 reports of fires so far, as a direct result of the defects mentioned above. Aside from property damage, these accidents can cause life-altering injuries, including severe burns, disfigurement, brain damage, coma, seizures, and even death. If you or a loved one suffered bodily harm and/or property damage from one of these fireplaces, call us right away to discuss your rights and legal options. You may be eligible for a personal injury claim against the manufacturer, which will compensate you for medical bills, lost income, damage to your home, and other monetary damages. However, there is a limited amount of time to take action on a defective product accident case, so don’t delay in contacting our office for a free case review.
