Master Burner Gas Grills Sold at Lowe’s Stores
February 13, 2010 (Washington D.C.) The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the Sagittarius Sporting Goods of China, recently announced a voluntary recall of Master Forge five-burner gas grills. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately and contact the manufacturer for a free repair kit.
Approximately 10,000 of the grills were sold exclusively through Lowe’s stores nationwide from September through November 2009 for about $500. The products were manufactured by Sagittarius Sporting Goods in China and imported by LG Sourcing Inc. of North Wilkesboro, North Carolina. A flexible rubber hose on the liquid petroleum (LP) gas tank can come into contact with the burner box, causing the hose to melt and rupture when the grill is lit. This poses a fire and burn hazard to consumers.
This recall involves Master Forge five-burner, stainless steel gas grills. The name “Master Forge” is on the grill hood. The model number L3218 is located on a label inside the left front door of the grill.
Consumer Contact: To obtain a free repair kit and additional information, contact Sagittarius at (800) 444-6742 between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. ET Monday through Thursday, and 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Friday.
