Plano, TX– The U.S. Consumer Product safety Commission (CPSC), in connection with JCPenney Purchasing Corporation, announced a voluntary recall of the Cook Outdoor BBQ Grills on Thursday, December 10, 2009. The BBQ grills pose a threat of fire and burn injuries due to inadequate drainage in the drip pan, as reported by the CPSC.

Nearly 5,600 Cooks Outdoor BBQ Grills, which were manufactured in China, have been sold across the nation in JCPenney stores, and online at, from February 2009 through September 2009. The recalled product was sold at the retail prices between $190 and $600. The grills are equipped with a digital thermometer on the hood of the grill, a stainless steel top, and a global LP regulator. They can be distinguished by the lot number printed on the underside of the grill’s stand, which reads 780-2176. The CPSC is urging consumers to stop using the grills immediately, and ensure the grills are not usable by removing the gas regulator and hose assembly. All consumers should return the regulator and hose assembly to the JCPenney Catalog/Customer Service Desk at any JCPenney location to receive a full refund.
