The beveled lens on the solar light can act as a magnifying glass. When sunlight passes through the lens, nearby combustible materials, such as mulch or dry grass, can catch on fire. CPSC and Brinkmann have received five reports of grass and mulch fires caused by these solar lights. No injuries have been reported. The recall involves the outdoor Endura "Contempra" solar light with a beveled lens ring around the middle. The light is black and clear with a solar panel on top, and is mounted on a black stake. They were sold in single, two, four and six packs. Home, hardware and discount department stores nationwide, as well as mail order catalogs, sold these solar lights from February 1998 through December 2000 for between $20 and $85. Consumers should stop using the recalled solar lights immediately, and contact Brinkmann Corp. at (800) 675-5301 between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday to receive a free repair kit.
