Sunjoy Industries Group Limited, of Steubenville, Ohio, has recalled its Freestanding Steel Outdoor Fireplaces. The recall includes about 20,000 fireplaces in the United States and 400 in Canada. The decorative bronze powder coat finish on the fireplace chimney can ignite during use, posing a fire hazard to consumers.  Sunjoy says it 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. This recall involves “Garden Treasures Living” steel outdoor fireplaces with a bronze finish chimney and slate colored accents. The wood burning fireplace is approximately 24 inches deep by 35 inches wide and 57 inches tall, has two glass doors and a tile back inside. Item number 0027705 and model number L-OF082PST-3 are printed on the front page of the product’s instruction manual.

The fireplaces were sold at Lowe’s retail stores nationwide from March 2010 through November 2010 for about $300.

A positive manner

Several years ago my brother and sister -in-law were in a terrible car accident. My sister in-law was paralyzed from her neck down. Beasley Allen handled the case for my brother to see to it that my sister-in-law received the proper and necessary care she needed. I appreciate the attorneys and staff of Beasley Allen in handling this matter quickly and in a positive manner. Good job Beasley Allen!!
