Wolf recalls 24,000 ranges

Madison, Wis.-based Wolf Appliance has recalled 24,000 gas ranges manufactured in the United States due to a delayed gas ignition problem.

The faulty gas ignition can cause a flash of flames to come out of the range door when it’s opened.

The company has received 97 reports of delayed ignition, as well as 15 reports of minor burns, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission. There have been no reports of fires or property damage.

The ranges were sold through a variety of home-building and appliance stores around the country from January 1998 to June 2008. Some units were sold directly to home builders.
