Meijer Inc. Recalls Firepits; Product Can Tip Over and Pose a Fire Hazard
Name of Product:
Grand Gourmet Firepits
Meijer Inc., of Grand Rapids, Mich.
The legs of the firepit can bend or snap off during use, causing the firepit to tip over and in turn the fire can escape. This poses a fire hazard to consumers.
The firm has received reports of two incidents in which the legs of the firepits bowed in and buckled. No injuries have been reported.
This recall involves the Grand Gourmet metal wood-burning firepits model FSQ279. The firepit is black, has four legs and two sparks guards on top. It measures 27 inches wide by 27 inches deep by 25 1/2 inches high. The model number can be found on the cover page of the product manual.
Meijer retail stores in Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, and Kentucky from September 2004 through August 2007 for about $60.
Consumers should stop using the recalled firepits immediately and return them to their nearest Meijer retailer for a full refund.
