In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), CFM Corporation of Mississauga, Ontario, Canada has recalled 12,500 five-burner Vermont Castings barbeque grills

The recalled units have a gas leak and fire hazard. According to CPSC, the burner tubes may not fit fully into the gas valves. If a consumer pulls on the console, the metal may flex and the gas valves may disconnect from the burners, releasing gas and creating a fire risk that could cause injury and property damage.

CFM Corporation has received 38 reports involving gas leaks. No injuries or property damage have been reported.

The recalled grills, which were manufactured in Canada, have five burners and a label on the back of the cabinet with the model number on the left side. Models CF9086 and VCS5000 are equipped with a side burner. Model CF9085 is not equipped with a side burner. Grills that do not have five burners and grills sold before 2004 are not affected by this recall.

Model VCS5000 barbeque grills were sold at Vermont Castings dealers and distributors in Canada and the U.S. from January 2004 through September 2004 for between U.S. $899 and $1,249. Models CF9085 and CF9086 were sold at The Home Depot in Canada and the U.S. from January 2004 through September 2004 for between $899 and $1,249.

Consumers were advised to stop using the grill and immediately contact CFM Corporation to schedule a free, in-home repair or to make arrangements to receive a consumer-installed safety retrofit kit.

CFM Corporation says it has already notified known purchasers about this recall.
