Air Exchangers Recall & Home Fire Hazards
Ohio Product Liability Lawyer Investigating Defective Venmar Air Exchangers and the Recent Product Recall
Venmar Ventilation of Quebec, Canada, released a statement saying that Venmar air exchangers can overheat, causing a potential fire hazard. Consumers who utilize this company should contact them for a free inspection and a resulting free repair if necessary.
The Venmar air exchanger recall affects 108,000 households in the United States, with 78,000 additional households already affected in previous recalls by the company. In Canada, 207,000 households are affected by this recall.
With the current and previous recalls, there have been 30 fires, resulting in $1.1 million in property damages. No injuries or deaths have yet been reported, however.
The Venmar air exchangers with heat recovery that are under recall were sold by heating, air, and plumbing companies specifically from 2002 to 2008. The air exchangers without heat recovery that are under recall were sold between 2002 and 2009, specifically.
Product liability cases are complex cases and require the help of qualified counsel and qualified expert witnesses to perform a root cause analysis and formulate a scientifically based opinion on both defective design and causation.
It is critical to preserve any evidence of a defective product that has caused a burn accident. An investigation may reveal that the manufacturer is liable, and possibly the distributor, should they beware of the fire and burn injury risks and failed to warn consumers.
