270,000 Awnings Sold At Costco, Other Retailers Recalled After Man Dies

- Aug 15, 2019-

(WPTA21) — Awning covers used with several retractable awnings are being recalled due to 


impact and fall hazards that have claimed the life of one man and injured six other people.


The Consumer Product Safety Commission said the recall involves soft vinyl awning covers 


used with SunSetter Motorized, Motorized XL, Motorized PRO, Motorized PROXL, and Oasis 


Freestanding Motorized Retractable Awnings.


The recalled covers were distributed by SunSetter from June 1999 to January 2019 and 


supplied with bungee tie-downs.


Customers with recalled awning covers should not remove or install them until they get 


instructions from SunSetter. SunSetter is also providing customers with free breakaway 


safety clips that will replace the bungee tie-downs. The company is contacting affected 


customers directly, but customers can contact SunSetter for more information.
