Blue Ember Gas Grills recalled for fire risk
The gas tank’s hose can get too close to the firebox and become exposed to heat, posing a fire hazard to consumers, the commission said.
The company that makes the Blue Ember grills, Dickson, Tenn.-based Fiesta Gas Grills, has received 161 reports of fires, resulting in nine injuries.
Blue Ember grills were sold at a variety of home centers and retailers from November 2006 to June 2008. The grills sold for $400 to $500 in the U.S. For a complete list of model numbers, read the media release.
The commission asks consumers to stop using the product and call Fiesta Gas Grills to obtain a free replacement grease pan assembly and the instructions for installing the replacement part and the gas tank.
