Home Depot Product Authority LLC, of Atlanta, Georgia announced the recall for “Outdoor Gas Fire Pit Table Patio Heaters” after 3 reports of consumers who were burned while turning off the propane tank after using the gas fire pit.

The problem is that it does not have a heat shield, according to a recall notice posted by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on February 21, 2018:

The bowl base of the fire pits lacks a heat shield to protect consumers from burns while turning off the propane tank after use, posing a burn hazard.

Home Depot is recalling the Hampton Bay 50,000 BTU, 30-inch Cross Ridge Outdoor Gas Fire Pit Table Patio Heaters with model number G-FTB51057B and UPC 6944937601579.

The fire pit has an antique bronze finish with a natural slate tabletop and a black base that holds a propane tank. The model and UPC are printed on the product’s packaging.

They were sold at Home Depot stores nationwide and online between August 2016 and November 2017 for about $200.

They were manufactured by Zhejiang Yayi Metal Technology Co., Ltd. dba Yayi, of China

Consumers should contact Yayi for a free repair kit which includes a heat shield and installation instructions.
