Outdoor Fireplace Recall

The US Consumer Product Safety Commission recently informed of a recall to the Agio International’s “Garden Treasures” Outdoor Steel Dome Fireplaces. About 34,000 were sold exclusively at Lowe’s for around $100. Apparently there have been instances of the exterior touch-up paint igniting. Fortunately no injuries have yet been reported, and anyone who has purchased one can return it to Lowe’s for a full refund. Go to the CPSC website to verify manufacturer’s item code and to review specific instructions concerning the recall. These are pretty popular products—I just saw two such fireplaces outside a couple beach houses on the coast of NH. Let’s hope the owners read this blog…
