Researcher Calls for Safer Glass-Fronted Gas Fireplaces: Burn Threat Remains
Date:6/28/2012

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) June 28, 2012

In January 2011, FairWarning reported that more than 2,000 children ages five and under suffered burn injuries from fireplace glass from 1999 to 2009, according to a federal estimate. As Pollack-Nelson mentions “The glass front of a gas fireplace may seem like a barrier to parents but in fact the glass is hot enough to cause severe burns with only momentary contact”.

According to court documents, on May 2nd 2011 a class action suit was filed (case no. 3:11-cv-02146-EDL) in federal court in Oakland contending that owners of Valor fireplaces have suffered economic loss because they will need to install safeguards on the fireplaces to prevent small children and infants from third-degree burns. The two-year-old daughter, Signe, of the class representative of the suit, Sean Whelan of San Francisco, suffered severe burns from a Valor gas fireplace.
