The Brinkmann Corporation and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announces a recall of 130,000 Brinkmann-brand and Charmglow-brand Gas Grills manufactured by Brinkmann.
The regulator manufacturer is Zhonghshan GDA Gas Valve Co. Ltd., of China. The regulators on these gas grills, the component that controls the amount of gas released to the burner, could leak gas when attached to certain liquid propane tanks. This poses a risk of fire and burn injuries.
The Brinkmann Corporation has received two reports of a small flame reportedly due to gas leaking at or near the propane cylinder. No injuries or property damage have been reported.
The recall involves Brinkmann-brand and Charmglow-brand gas grills. The regulator is attached to the side of the grills. Only grills that have regulators with the name "GDA" are affected by this recall. The grills have three to six burners and the name "Brinkmann" or "Charmglow" on the lid.
The products were sold at home centers, sporting goods and hardware stores nationwide from January 2005 through September 2005. Consumers with grills that have the "GDA" regulator should contact Brinkmann to receive a free repair kit or replacement hose regulator assembly.
