Bluworld/Nu-Flame of Orlando, FL, is recalling Vivo and Vivido wall mounted fireplaces.
Overfilling or spilling fuel while attempting to refill fireplace fuel cups while in place can lead to the fuel cup being ejected from the fireplace, posing a fire or burn hazard to the user, bystanders or items nearby. The company has received two reports of property damage to clothing, bedding and a pet bed, but no reports of injuries.
The wall mounted fireplaces have a 2 or 3.4 liter capacity burner fuel cup with an ethanol open flame behind a tempered glass shield with a metal curved base and a black metal backboard. Both wall mounted fireplaces measure about 20-inches in height. The Vivo NF-W4VIO model measures about 39-inches in width and the Vivido NF-W3VIO model fireplace measures 26-inches in width. The model number is printed on the product packaging.
The fireplaces, manufactured in China, were sold at On-line retailers including Amazon.com, Overstock.com and DirectBuy.com from November 2011, through December 2012, for between $300 and $400 for the Vivo model and between $200 and $300 for the Vivido model.
