The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Lamplight Farms Inc. Announce Recall of 963,000 TikiĀ® Bamboo Torches and 18,000 Replacement Fuel Canisters for Fire and Burn Hazard

Aug 24, 2005 | www.newsinferno.com

The CPSC, in cooperation with Lamplight Farms Inc., of Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin, has announced a voluntary recall of some 963,000Tiki® Bamboo Torches and approximately Replacement Fuel Canisters manufactured in China. Consumers should stop using the recalled products immediately.

The surface coating of some flame guards on these bamboo torches and replacement canisters can absorb the fuel and ignite. This can cause the torch and nearby combustibles to catch on fire, posing a risk of burn injuries and property damage.

Lamplight Farms has received 33 reports of torches catching on fire. There were six reports of minor injuries and nine reports of minor property damage.

These 5-foot-tall Tiki® bamboo torches consist of a bamboo pole with a weaved basket at the top and a metal flame guard, which is a circular black piece that holds the wick in place and attaches to the fuel canister.

The recall includes the Tiki® Beachcomber, Seagrass, and Sandpiper model torches. The recall also involves replacement canisters that have the metal flame guards. Recalled units have the following UPC numbers: 086861010372 (Beachcomber), 086861013335 (Seagrass), 086861010457 (Sandpiper) and 076354995262 (Replacement Canister). The UPC number and the model name are written on the packaging or attached tag.

The products were sold at Wal-Mart, The Home Depot, Lowe’s and other home and hardware stores nationwide from December 2004 through July 2005 for between $5 and $6. The replacement canisters were sold for about $1.40.

Consumers should immediately stop using these torches and contact Lamplight Farms to determine if they are included in the recall. If so, they will receive free replacement flame guards.
