Costco Recalls 400,000 Solar Patio Umbrellas After Several Catch Fire

Costco has recalled a solar patio umbrella after reports of the item catching fire. 

The SunVilla 10-foot Solar LED Market Umbrella is meant to provide shade in the day and light up at night. 

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

The CPSC listed "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."

Costco sold around 400,000 umbrellas from December 2020 through May 2022.

Customers should return the umbrellas to Costco for a full refund.
