The Coleman Company, Inc. and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announces a recall of about 124,000 grills and about 6,200 heaters
The regulators on these products can leak propane when the propane cylinder is turned on and the product is not in use. This can pose a fire or explosion hazard.
Coleman has received 98 reports of these regulators leaking propane. Coleman has received no reports of injuries or property damage.

The recall includes Coleman(R) Gas Grills with model numbers 5100, 5300, 5400, 5600, 6000, and 7700, and Coleman(R) Patio Heater with model number 5040. The model name and number can be found directly on the front of the grills and on the inside cover of the heaters.

The grills were sold from January 2004 through July 2005 for between U.S. $270 and $1,260 at Lowes, Expo Design Centers and various pool and patio retailers nationwide. The patio heaters were sold from June 2004 through July 2005 for between $500 and $600. Consumers should stop using the grills and heaters immediately and contact Coleman for a free replacement regulator assembly. Once the regulator is replaced, the grill or heater may be used.
