BlueStar wall ovens recalled by Prizer Painter Stove Works

Certain BlueStar residential gas wall ovens are the subject of a recall, according to an announcement Thursday by the Consumer Product Safety Commission. 

Some of the wall ovens have been improperly installed or have damaged flexible gas appliance connectors, posing a fire hazard, according to the CPSC. So far, no injuries have been reported, but the frm has received one report of a fire.

The recall involves all colors of three models of BlueStar gas-powered stainless steel wall ovens manufactured prior to Nov. 23, 2012. Oven sizes include 24-, 30- and 36-in.-wide units. Each of the three sizes was available for use with natural gas or liquid propane. 

The products were sold at appliance stores and authorized kitchen equipment dealers nationwide between January 2008 through November 2012 for between $2,250 and $3,900.
