Saber Gas Grill Recall Issued Due to Risk of Flame Bursts, Burn Injuries
Following reports of gas leaks and flame bursts, more than 25,000 Saber gas grills and regulators are being recalled, due to a serious fire and burn hazard for consumers.
The Saber Grills recall was announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on September 26, following at least 35 consumer reports indicating the regulators on the grills malfunctioned and leaked gas. Among those incidents, five individuals reported flames bursting from the grill, resulting in burned skin or singed hair.
The CPSC indicates that the grills’ LP regulator can allow gas to flow at a higher pressure than intended, which can result in a gas leak. In the presence of an open flame from the grills’ burners, the gas leak could cause an explosion.
