Bluworld/Nu-Flame is recalling its Nu-Flame Vivo and Vivido wall mounted fireplaces.

Overfilling or spilling fuel while attempting to refill fireplace fuel cups while in place can lead to the fuel cup being ejected from the fireplace, posing a fire or burn hazard to the user, bystanders or items nearby.

The Vivo and Vivido wall mounted fireplaces each have a 2 or 3.4 liter capacity burner fuel cup with an ethanol open flame behind a tempered glass shield with a metal curved base and a black metal backboard.

Both fireplaces measure about 20-inches in height. The Vivo NF-W4VIO model measures about 39-inches in width and the Vivido NF-W3VIO model fireplace measures 26-inches in width. The model number is printed on the product packaging.

The recalled fireplaces were sold through online retailers including Amazon.com, Overstock.com and DirectBuy.com from November 2011 through December 2012.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled wall mounted fireplaces and contact Blueworld/Nu-Flame to arrange for a free repair.
