Gas Fire Columns Recalled For Being Too Aptly Named

Some outdoor gas fire columns sold through Costco in the past 6-7 months have been recalled, because “gas can leak from connections in the column, posing a fire hazard.” I guess that’s why the photo shows it next to a serene koi pond–it’s so you can grab a rake and push it into the water if it gets too fire column-y.

The CPSC notes that “only products with serial numbers running sequentially from 0081959SD through 0087754SD are affected. The model number GFP207 and the serial number is printed on a label that is located inside the door on the base.”
