CPSC: O-Grill Portable Gas Grills by Uni-O Recalled for Fire/Burn Risks

01/03/2012 // WPB, FL, USA // Injury Lawyers News // Nicole Howley

Washington, D.C. — The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Uni-O (Xiamen) Industries Corporation of Xiamen have voluntarily recalled O-Grill Portable Gas Grills for fire and burn hazards the product poses to consumers.

The CPSC announced the nationwide product recall on January 3, 2012.

The recall was issued after discovering that the regulator on the grill can leak gas and ignite, which poses a burn and fire hazard to consumers.

“This recall involves Iroda O-Grill models 1000 and 3000 produced before 2010. Some were also sold under the Tailgating Gear brand. Both models are lightweight, portable, clamshell-type propane grills with steel bodies, cast iron cooking surfaces, retractable legs and a handle. They can be used with either 1-pound propane cylinders or 20-pound propane tanks. The grills come in orange, red, green, blue, silver and black and have the words ‘O-Grill’ stamped on the metal grill cover. Recalled O-Grills do not have ventilation slots in the regulator cover where the propane bottle screws in. Grills with ventilation slots in the regulator cover are not subject to the recall,” the CPSC reported.

Consumers are advised to contact Uni-O for a free replacement grill.

For more information concerning the product recall, consumers can contact Uni-O toll-free at (888) 847-8968 between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, or visit www.regcen.com/OGRILL.
