    The fireplaces, manufactured in Canada, were sold at Hearth Fireplace specialty stores nationwide from August 1992, through May 2001, for about $1,500.

    Consumers should stop using the recalled fireplaces and contact their local Napoleon Fireplace Hearth Dealer to arrange a service call to have a free upgrade kit installed on their fireplace. The upgrade kit must be installed by a qualified gas appliance technician.
