Clay Outdoor Fireplace Recall

The Clay Outdoor Fireplace has been recalled due to concerns over burn hazards.

This outdoor unit features a black metal bowl that sits in a clay bowl. The clay bowl is nestled within a steel bowl frame that measures approximately 23 inches in diameter. The Clay Outdoor Fireplace has a domed lid that adds a safety feature to prevent burns and serious accidents. The model number should also be listed within the instruction manual that the product came with.

Reason for Recall

The Clay Outdoor Fireplace has been recalled after receiving multiple reports from consumers who voiced their concern about elements from the fireplace becoming airborne when in use. When the fire heats up, pieces of the clay bowl can become dislodged and float in the air, creating a burn hazard for those in the surrounding area. Fortunately, no injuries have been reported to date. The CPSC has issued the recall as a preventative measure to avoid foreseen dangers of nearly 1,200 units that have been sold across the United States.
