CHILTON, Wis. — If you have a bird bath, make sure it is not part of this recall. The Consumer Product Safety Commission said Backyard Nature Products is recalling its Birds Choice Hanging and Pole-Mounted Acrylic Bird Baths due to a fire hazard.
These bird baths were sold in red, yellow and clear at bird and pet supply stores, garden and nursery stores, hardware stores, and retail stores and online nationwide from January 2010 through May 2022.
The recall was initiated because when sunlight goes through the acrylic surface onto a nearby wooden surface, such as siding or decking, the wood surface can overheat. So far, Backyard Nature Products has received two reports of the recalled bird baths causing overheating, smoking, fire and scorching to homes’ decking and siding. No injuries have been reported.
The bird baths are 14-inches wide and include a hanging chain and hook and pole mount. The UPC is at the bottom of the box. The following products are subject to recall:
|AAP206||Clear Pole Mounted Bird Bath||789453960030|
|AAP214||Red Pole Mounted Bird Bath||789453960047|
|AAP216||Yellow Pole Mounted Bird Bath||789453960054|

|AAH214||Red Hanging Bird Bath||789453960016|
|AAH216||Yellow Hanging Bird Bath||789453960023|
