Wolf Steel Ltd. is recalling around 3,000 Napoleon GD3200-P and GD3200B-P propane gas fireplaces. The pressure from the ignition of the propane gas can cause the glass front to break, posing a laceration hazard to consumers.

The recalled fireplaces are black and approximately 33 inches tall and 31.25 inches wide with gold accent designs on the top and bottom of the outside of the fireplace. The model number GD3200-P and GD3200B-P can be found in the center of the rating label. The rating label is located on the base of the fireplace behind the lower louvered access door.

The gas fireplaces affected by this recall were sold at Hearth Fireplace specialty stores nationwide from August 1992 through May 2001.

Consumers should stop using the recalled fireplaces and contact their local Napoleon Fireplace Hearth Dealer. A free upgrade kit will be installed on the fireplace by a qualified gas appliance technician.
