Gas-fueled fire pits have been a hot trend in recent years, sold at a wide variety of retailers across the country. This week, the Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a recall of a fire pit sold under the Hampton Bay name through Home Depot.
The Hampton Bay 50,000 BTU, 30 inch Cross Ridge Outdoor Gas Fire Pit Table Patio Heaters are being recalled because the bowl base of the fire pits lack a heat shield to protect consumers from burns while turning off the propane tank after use, posing a burn hazard.
The fire pits in question have an antique bronze finish with a natural slate tabletop and black base that holds a propane tank. Affected model numbers are G-FTB51057B and UPC 6944937601579. These fire pits were sold at Home Depot stores and online from August 2016 through November 2017.
