Uni-O Industries Corporation recently announced a recall of its O-Grill Portable Gas Grills. The company initiated the recall after receiving 10 reports of grills catching fire. No injuries or property damage have been reported.
The regulator on the grill can leak gas which can ignite, posing a fire and burn hazard to consumers.
This recall involves Iroda O-Grill models 1000 and 3000 produced before 2010. Some were also sold under the Tailgating Gear brand. Both models are lightweight, portable, clamshell-type propane grills with steel bodies, cast iron cooking surfaces, retractable legs and a handle. They can be used with either 1-pound propane cylinders or 20-pound propane tanks. The grills come in orange, red, green, blue, silver and black and have the words “O-Grill” stamped on the metal grill cover. Recalled O-Grills do not have ventilation slots in the regulator cover where the propane bottle screws in. Grills with ventilation slots in the regulator cover are not subject to the recall.
Approximately 4,530 grills were sold at LL Bean, Stoneman, BBQG, Walgreens, REI, Dillards and Dick’s Sporting Goods nationwide from November 2008 through December 2010. The O-Grill 1000 sold for $149 and the O-Grill 3000 sold for $189.
According to the recall notice, consumers should immediately stop using the grills and contact Uni-O to receive a free replacement grill.
