According to the CPSC, SunVilla Corporation has recalled an estimated total 430,000 of Solar LED Market Umbrellas (approximately 400,000 in the US and approximately 33,000 in Canada) from the American and Canadian marketplaces and sold exclusively at Costco due to overheating.

In this case, the lithium-ion Batteries in the Umbrella’s Solar Panels can overheat. If this defect occurs, it poses consequential risks of burns, scalds, smoke inhalation, respiratory failure, cardiac system collapse and/or property damage.

SunVilla has received six (6) reports of the lithium-ion Batteries overheating. This includes three (3) reports of Solar Panels catching fire while charging via the AC Adapter indoors and two (2) reports of Umbrellas catching fire when the Solar Panel Puck overheated and caught fire while attached to the Umbrella and one (1) smoke inhalation injury.

Please note: this is a joint recall from the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) and Health Canada (“HCSC”).

Proposed Remedy:
If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled SunVilla branded Solar LED Market Umbrellas, please do not use them. Instead, kindly remove the Solar Panel Puck containing a lithium-ion battery from the top of the Umbrella, store the Puck out of the sun and away from combustible material, and do not charge the Puck with the AC Adapter.

You can return the Umbrellas and Solar Pucks to any Costco Warehouse for a full refund. If you are unable to return the product to Costco, please contact SunVilla Corporation for instructions on how to receive a refund. SunVilla and Costco are contacting all known (i.e., registered or online) purchasers.
