TAMPA, Fla. — Multiple models of a gas grill sold at Bass Pro Shop and Cabela's has been recalled due to a potential fire hazard.
The recall involves four and five burner models of Mr. Steak propane gas grills.
The problem involves the grill's fuel gauge and fuel line. Officials say the gas regulator hose and attached fuel gauge can melt if it comes in contact with the bottom of the grill’s firebox.
Bass Pro received nine reports of grill fires occurring due to the defect. No injuries or property damage have been reported.
The recall involves model numbers:
- MS-4B-PG, SKU 2472264
- MS-5B-PG, SKU 2472265
The grills are stainless steel with black trim and have four or five black and red dials. The words “Mr. Steak” are printed below the thermometer on the grills’ lid.
For customers that added an aftermarket fuel gauge to the regulator assembly, the recall also applies to SKU numbers 2366916 and 2366917.
The model number is located on a label on the inside of the left compartment door or on the back of the grill. The SKU number is printed on the receipt.
The recalled grills were sold from May 2017 through July 2019 at Bass Pro Shops, Cabela’s and ABT Appliance & Electronics stores nationwide and online at basspro.com and cabelas.com . The four-burner grill sold for about $500, and the five-burner grill sold for about $600.
Approximately 3,300 grills were sold in the U.S. and an additional 400 in Canada.
