Guangdong Vanward Electric announced a recall of Master Forge Gas Grills. Guangdong Vanward is aware of two reports of hoses melting and rupturing. No injuries have been reported.
If improperly installed, the hose connecting the gas tank and regulator to the burner control can touch the burner box and cause the hose to melt and rupture when the grill is lit. This poses a fire and burn hazard.
The gas grills were sold from November 2011 through May 2012. This recall involves Master Forge four-burner gas grills with a single-door base. “Master Forge” is written on the grill’s hood. The model number GD4825 is located on a label inside the door of the grill’s base. “Item 94227” is written on the cover of the instruction manual.
Approximately 37,0000 gas grills were sold at Lowe’s stores nationwide from November 2011 through May 2012 for about $270.
According to the recall notice, consumers should immediately stop using the grill and inspect the grill to make sure that the gas hose runs along the outside of the grill cabinet and passes through the round hole in the side panel. Consumers should contact Guangdong Vanward Electric for revised instructions and a warning label to apply to the grill that shows how to properly install the hose and the regulator.
