February 22, 2001
WASHINGTON, D.C.- In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), The Brinkmann Corporation, of Dallas, Texas, is voluntarily recalling about 79,000 outdoor solar lights for repair. The beveled lens on the solar light can act as a magnifying glass. When sunlight passes through the lens, nearby combustible materials, such as mulch or dry grass, can catch on fire.
CPSC and Brinkmann have received five reports of grass and mulch fires caused by these solar lights. No injuries have been reported.
