Product poses fire hazard, CPSC announces recall.

North Wilkesboro, NC—Sagittarius Sporting Goods has participated in the voluntary recall of Master Forge Five-Burner Gas Grills due to the possible fire and burn hazards they may pose, announced the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on Wednesday, January 6, 2010.

The China-based manufacturer, Sagittarius Sporting Goods made the decision to recall these particular gas grills due to a hazard in which the rubber hose on the LP gas tank has the ability to melt and rupture if it comes into contact with the burner box when the grill is ignited. Though no injuries or complaints of damaged property have come to the attention of the firm, they have received two reports of the hoses melting and breaking.

These Master Forge five-burner, stainless steel gas grills, imported by L G Sourcing Inc., were sold throughout the United States in Lowe’s stores from September 2009 to November 2009 for approximately $500 a piece. The name “Master Forge” is reportedly located on the grill hood. Labeled on the left front door of the grill is the model number L3218. It was noted that approximately 10,000 of these gas grills have been recalled due to the fire and burn dangers associated with them.

Consumers are urged to stop using the recalled product immediately to prevent injury or fire. A free repair kit may be obtained by calling Sagittarius Sporting Goods at (800) 444-6742 between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. ET Monday through Thursday, and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday.
