On Thursday, ZLINE Kitchen and Bath recalled certain models of its gas kitchen ranges because the oven can emit dangerous levels of carbon monoxide while in use, potentially causing serious injury or death.
The company said it has received 44 reports of carbon monoxide emission from customers, including three reports of people needing medical attention.
Customers should immediately stop using the oven of these ranges.
The ranges were sold from February 2019 through December 2022 for between $2,300 and $5,000 each. They were sold at Best Buy, Lowe's, Home Depot and the Range Hood Store stores nationwide, as well as online stores.
About 28,000 units are being recalled. Model numbers are RG30, RGS-30, RGB-30, RG36, RGS-36 and RGB-36.
Those sold came in various colors, including black matte, blue gloss, blue matte, DuraSnow (a cloudy steel finish), red gloss, red matte and white matte, as well as multiple finishes including stainless steel, black stainless steel and DuraSnow.
The ZLINE logo is printed on the bottom of the range door. The model number is printed on a label on the back of the range. Ranges purchased after 2020 also have the model number printed on a label underneath the right side of the range top, which is visible when the oven door is open.

Consumers may continue to use the range stovetops, which are unaffected by the issue, according to the recall notice issued by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
