It’s important to ensure that the products we use in our homes are safe, and staying informed about recent product recalls is a key part of this process. In the U.S., the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) issues recall notices for a wide range of products. These notices, which the agency updates regularly on its website, are essential resources for consumers.

If you find out that you own a recalled product, it’s important to stop using it immediately and follow the instructions provided in the recall notice, which typically recommend contacting the manufacturer or seller for a refund or replacement.

Read on to learn about the home-related products that were recalled in November 2023.

ZLINE is updating its recall response for certain gas ranges that were originally recalled in January 2023 due to a critical hazard where the oven can emit high levels of carbon monoxide (CO) while in use, posing serious risks of injury or death. Initially, a repair was offered, but ZLINE is now expanding options to include a replacement range or a refund. Before the initial recall, 44 incidents of CO emission were reported, including three cases requiring medical attention, and post-recall, 131 reports indicated unsuccessful repairs with continued CO emission risks.

It’s crucial for consumers, even those who previously had their range repaired, to stop using the oven compartment immediately. The range top can still be used safely. ZLINE is reaching out to those who already had repairs for further inspection and informing them about the latest options. If you haven’t arranged a repair yet, contact ZLINE for the latest options available.
