    If you purchased one of the most modern patio umbrellas with a solar panel and lighting, your property may be at risk for a fire.

    SunVilla Corporation’s “10′ Solar LED Market Umbrellas” were sold at Costco, according to USA Today.

    Approximately 400,000 umbrellas that sold for between $130 and $160 are being recalled. Approximately 33,000 umbrellas were sold in Canada.

    SunVilla’s 10-foot Solar LED Market Umbrella is being recalled due to a fire threat.
    Stop using the recalled umbrella immediately and return it to Costco Canada for a full refund.

    Consumer Product Safety Commission: “The lithium-ion batteries in the umbrella’s solar panels can overheat, posing fire and burn hazards.”

    CPSC: “The firm has received six reports of lithium-ion batteries overheating.”

    “This includes three reports of solar panels catching fire while charging via the AC adapter indoors and two reports of umbrellas catching fire when the solar panel puck overheated and caught fire while attached to the umbrella and one smoke inhalation injury.”

    “Consumers should immediately stop using the umbrellas, remove the solar panel puck containing a lithium-ion battery from the top of the umbrella, store the puck out of the sun and away from combustible material and do not charge the puck with the AC adapter,” the CPSC stated on its website.

    “Consumers can return the umbrellas and solar puck to any Costco Warehouse nationwide for a full refund. Consumers unable to return the product to Costco can contact the firm for instructions on how to receive a refund. SunVilla and Costco are contacting all known purchasers.”

    The CPSC noted that the umbrellas were made in China.

    The umbrellas were sold through Costco from December 2020 through May 2022, USA Today reported.
