The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Jøtul North America (Portland, ME, U.S.), announced a voluntary recall of an estimated 3,200 of its gas-fired stoves. Consumers were advised to stop using the product immediately and shut off the gas supply.

According to the company, movement or misplacement of the stove's burner can allow propane gas to settle in the heater, resulting in delayed ignition. The delayed ignition could shatter the door glass and pose a laceration hazard to consumers.

Jøtul has received six reports of delayed ignition resulting in glass breakage. One laceration injury has been reported.

The recall involves two Jøtul models of gas-fired stoves-the GF 100 DV II Nordic QT and the GF 200 DV II Lillehammer. The stoves are fueled with liquid propane (LP) gas. The model number (either GF 100 DV II or GF 200 DV II) can be found on the metal rating plate attached to the back of the stove.

The units were sold at dealers and distributors throughout the U.S. for between $1,100 and $1,300 from June 2004 through April 2005.
