The tent’s stove jack ring can deteriorate at high temperatures

Westfield Outdoor of Indianapolis, Ind., is recalling about 5,900 Outfitter and Big Horn tents sold in the U.S and Canada.

The tents' stove jack rings can deteriorate when exposed to high temperatures from contact with a stove pipe and create smoke inside the tent. This poses a risk of injury from smoke inhalation.

The firm has received three reports of the stove jack ring deteriorating due to heat and creating smoke and one report of smoke inhalation and frostbite related to discontinuing the use of a wood stove while camping.

This recall involves only the Cabela’s Ultimate Alaknak Outfitter, the Instinct Outfitter, and the Big Horn 6P tents supplied by Westfield Outdoor.

The tents’ sizes range from 10 feet by 10 feet to 13 feet by 27 feet and are sold in green. The name, model number, SKU, and date code (HF MMDDYY) providing the place and date of manufacture are printed on the inside of the tent on the sewn-in warning label.

The tents are designed for the optional use of a wood stove inside. The stove pipe exits the tent through the stove jack ring which provides a seal between the stove pipe and the tent. A list of the recalled model numbers may be found here.

The tents, manufactured in China, were sold exclusively at Cabela’s and Bass Pro Shops nationwide and online at www.cabelas.com and www.basspro.com from August 2019, through November 2020, for between $900 and $1,500.

What to do

Consumers should immediately stop using a wood stove inside the tents and contact Westfield Outdoor for a free replacement stove jack ring.

Consumers may remove the old stove jack ring from the tent and install the replacement ring by following the instructions provided with the replacement ring. Westfield Outdoor is contacting all known purchasers directly.
