Convective heat (heated air only) can escape from behind the fireplace trim and overheat. While there is no evidence of a fire risk or significant charring, the stream of convective heat could cause possible discoloration of the adjacent wood studs or, over a period of time, charring of the wood behind the trim.
Miles Industries Ltd. has received one report of discoloration in Canada, and no reports of injuries. In the United States, the company has received no reports of charring or discoloration, and no reports of injuries.
Approximately 1,864 units of the affected products were sold in Canada, and approximately 976 were sold in the United States.

The recalled fireplaces and fireplace trims were sold in Canada and the United States from June 2014 to March 2018 at various dealers and distributors.
Place of origin
