WASHINGTON - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), in cooperation with Lennox Hearth Products, has announced a voluntary recall of the Lennox Superior VFGL Vent-Free Gas Log Sets and VF Vent-Free Fireplaces.

The front burners of the vent-free gas log set fireplace inserts and the vent-free fireplaces can fail to ignite, allowing gas to escape and posing a fire or explosion hazard to consumers. Lennox received two reports from installers of the log sets failing to light. There were no reports of injuries.

The recalled products are Lennox Superior brand VFGL Log Sets and VF4000, VF5000 and VF6000 fireplaces. Units with serial numbers starting with “6408C” through “6408M,” and those starting with “6409” are included in this recall. Also included are units that had repairs made to the burner assembly between March 2008 and December 2009. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled log sets and fireplaces and contact Lennox for information about how to arrange for a free inspection and repair.
