The tent’s stove jack ring can deteriorate when exposed to high temperatures from contact with a stove pipe and create smoke inside the tent, posing a risk of injury from smoke inhalation.

As of July 14, 2022 Westfield Outdoor has received 3 reports of the stove jack ring deteriorating due to heat and creating smoke in Canada, and 1 report of smoke inhalation and frostbite related to discontinuing the use of a wood stove while camping. In the United States, the company has received no reports of incidents and no reports of injuries.

Consumers should immediately stop using a wood stove inside the tents and contact Westfield Outdoor for a free replacement stove jack ring.
