Description: Table Top Grills Recall/Repair by Char-Broil NEWS from CPSC U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission Office of Information and Public Affairs Washington, DC 20207 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE CONTACT: Media Relations June 26, 1996 (301) 504-7908 Release # 96-153 CPSC and Char-Broil Announce Recall to Repair Table Top Grills WASHINGTON,D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Char-Broil of Columbus, Ga., is announcing a voluntary recall to replace the regulators on about 1.2 million Char-Broil table top LP gas grills (Model 1200). If dirt, sand, or other debris becomes lodged in the grill's regulator valve, the regulator may appear to be shut off when it's not. Gas may continue to flow through the regulator, building up over time. If consumers try to relight the grill after LP gas has built up, the grill could burst into flames or explode. Char-Broil and CPSC are not aware of any injuries involving these grills. This recall is being conducted to prevent the possibility of injury. The black steel tabletop grills measure approximately 11 inches wide, 18 inches long, and nine inches deep (when closed). The grills are packaged with a silver metal grill shelf and two V-shaped metal stands in a brown cardboard box labeled in part, "Char-Broil ...Portable Tabletop LP Gas Grill ...Model 1200." Hardware and home supply stores, including Ace Hardware, Best Buy, and Home Depot, sold the grills nationwide from January 1992 to March 1996 for about $30. Consumers who own these grills should call Char-Broil at (800) 241-7548. Char-Broil will send consumers a new, free replacement regulator with an internal filter which will help prevent debris from interfering with the regulator. [Source]
