In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), outdoor appliance maker Nexgrill (Walnut, CA, U.S.) announced the recall of its Beefmaster Explorer Outdoor Gas Grill Model Number 720-0001.
Consumers should stop using the grill as the gas pressure regulator (on/off gauge) leading to the propane cylinder can become difficult to read as it is adjusted. This can cause consumers to inadvertently leave the gas valve on, posing a fire hazard. Nexgrill has received two reports of consumers leaving the gas valve on. No injuries or property damage has been reported.
The recalled grill features a table top grill made of stainless steel and is used with a disposable propane cylinder, which is purchased separately. Each grill has one main burner and a cooking grid that sits over the burner. Model numbers are located on the back panel of the grill. The brand name "Nexgrill" is on a plate on the grill lid.
Approximately 10,900 units were sold at Academy, Bar-B-Que Galore, Crate & Barrel, Home Town, and discount department stores throughout the U.S. Crate & Barrel also sold the grills through their catalog and at www.crateandbarrel.com. The grills
Were manufactured in China and sold from January 2002 through June 2003 for about $100.
