The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Nexgrill Industries Inc., announced a voluntary recall of approximately 16,000 Nexgrill gas grills. Consumers were advised to stop using the grills immediately unless otherwise instructed.

According to the company, the Nexgrill Model 720-0025 gas grill has a hose that connects the propane tank to the burner manifold. If this hose runs too close to the firebox, the heat can cause the hose to detach from the burner manifold, causing a gas leak and a fire hazard.

Nexgrill received 31 incident reports, including 28 fires, three hoses melting, two cases of property damage, and four injuries.

The stainless-steel grill is designed to be used with propane gas. The name of the grill is located at the left corner of the exterior of the main burner lid. The serial number is printed on the CSA sticker, which is located behind the door. A temperature gauge is located at the center of the main burner lid.

The grills were sold throughout the U.S. at Target, Costco Canada, H-E-B, Chase-Pitkin, and Gander Mountain stores from December 2003 through March 2005 for between U.S. $499 to $599.
