WASHINGTON, Feb. 14, 2000 -- In cooperation with the
U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC),
New Cole Sewell Corp., of St. Paul, Minn., is recalling about
23,000 storm doors manufactured without retaining pins in
the upper windows.
The upper window can fall out and could injure those standing nearby.
New Cole Sewell Corp. has received 15 reports of upper windows falling out of the storm doors. No injuries have been reported.
The recall involves storm doors manufactured from June 1, 1999, through August 16, 1999, with the following product numbers:
The manufacturing date and product number are encoded in the 15- digit registration number. The first six digits are the manufacturing date, written as month, day, and year. The next five digits are the product number. The registration number is located on the interior side of the door, just below the lower left corner of the bottom window. "COLE SEWELL" also is on the registration number label. The company will help consumers identify if their door is part of the recall. The doors are either white or bronze with a black, push button handle.
Home Depot, Hechinger, HomeQuarter, small lumberyard and do-it- yourself centers sold these storm doors from June 1999 through December 1999 for between $80 and $140.
Consumers should remove the storm door's upper window immediately and call New Cole Sewell Corp. at (800) 328-6596 between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. CT Monday through Friday to receive a free window with installation instructions.
