In the United States, the company has received one report of delayed ignition, no window breakage, and no reports of injuries.

Number sold
Approximately 1,053 units of the affected products were sold in Canada and approximately 374 were sold in the United States.

The recalled fireplaces were sold in Canada and the United States from July 2014 to March 2020.
