(Oct. 1 ) -- Thousands of valves on portable gas grills which may pose a fire hazard are being recalled by their manufacturer, the King Seeley Thermos Company, in Prospect, Heights, Illinois. The recall is being conducted voluntarily in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. Due to the manufacturer's use of a defective supply of adhesive, some of the 23,383 grills may have faulty valves which leak propane gas. No injuries have been reported. The grills measure 13 by 23 inches. They have been manufactured since January, 1979 and contain a small one-pound propane cylinder. They have been sold nationwide under the "Structo" brand name in hardware stores and other retail outlets for approximately $40 to $60. The valves are on models 7962, 7963, 7964, 7965 and 7966. Model 7964 was sold exclusively by K-Mart retail outlets. The model numbers are listed in the instruction manual which accompanied the product, but not on the product itself. Consumers can obtain a free replacement gas valve by placing a collect call to the company at 815/235-8852. To verify model numbers, consumers also may contact CPSC's toll-free Hotline at 800/638-2772. [Source]
