CPSC issues voluntary recall of outdoor fireplaces

Recalled, though no injuries have been reported.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada announced a voluntary recall of "Garden Treasures Living" steel outdoor fireplaces made by Sunjoy Industries Group.

The decorative bronze finish on the fireplace chimney can ignite during use, according to an announcement from the CPSC. The recall applies to about 20,000 products in the United States and 400 in Canada. Steubenville, Ohio-based Sunjoy has received 14 reports of the chimney's decorative powder coat finish catching fire, resulting in one report of melted siding. No injuries have been reported.

No other "Garden Treasures Living" brand outdoor fireplaces are included in this recall.

The $300, made-in-China products were sold at Lowe's from March 2010 through November 2010.
