The recalled stoves include the Century, Hillary and LL Bean brands. Sporting goods, camping supply and mass merchandise stores nationwide sold the stoves from May through September. Consumers can call the company at (800) 435-4525 for information about replacing the stoves.
Madrigal Audio Laboratories, Inc., or Middletown, Conn., is recalling about 1,300 subwoofer speakers because a screw inside can cause a high voltage short, producing an electric shock.
