Description: Gas Grills With Side Burners Recalled by Sunbeam NEWS from CPSC U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission Office of Information and Public Affairs Washington, DC 20207 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Originally issued November 5, 1998, Revised June 27, 2006 Release # 99-016 Company Phone Number: (800) 200-2300 CPSC Consumer Hotline: (800) 638-2772 CPSC Media Contact: Ken Giles, (301) 504-7052 Note: Phone Number Change. CPSC and Sunbeam Products Inc. Announce Recall of Gas Grills With Side Burners WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Sunbeam Products Inc., of Neosho Mo., is recalling for repair approximately 80,000 Grillmaster gas grills with side burners. The side burner's propane gas hose can twist up toward the aluminum casting of the grill, causing overheating and melting of the hose. Gas leakage or a fire could result from the hose damage. Sunbeam Products received one complaint from a consumer who requested a replacement hose due to damage caused from the heat of the grill casting. There have been no reports of injuries associated with these grills. The recalled grills are black and have a side burner for cooking, similar to a gas-range stove top. The model numbers of the grills are: 56GR8, 560R8, 562D1, 562D9, GC548517, GG546517, GS544417, GS544717, GS546517, GG546537 and GG547517. The complete model numbers can be found on the identification label on the back of the grill, and on the assembly instructions and parts list. The word, "GRILLMASTER" is written on the front of these grills. Mass merchandise stores, such as Bradlees, Caldor, the Home Depot, Service Merchandise and Wal-Mart sold the grills nationwide from 1996 through July 1998 for about $200 to $250. Consumers should stop using the recalled grills immediately and call Sunbeam toll-free at (800) 200-2300 7:00 am to 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday, to receive a free retrofit kit. The retrofit kit contains a wire bracket guard and instructions for easy installation that will correctly position the side burner's propane gas hose. In March 1998, Sunbeam Products recalled grills with model numbers GG 461 EPB, GG 560 EPB, HG 560 EPB and GG 560 EPBS because of a similar hose placement hazard. [Source]
