The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Onward Manufacturing Co., has issued a voluntary recall of about 4,800 Broil King gas grills. A fire and burn hazard is posed to consumers if the bottom of the cook box containing the burners melts or cracks as the direct result of a grease fire. No incidents or injuries have been reported.
Manufactured in Canada and sold at independent retailers from February 2006 through April 2008 for between $450 and $700, this recall includes the Signet, Sovereign and Sovereign XL series gas grills. The Signet and Sovereign series grills each have 3 burners and drop down shelves with side and rear burners. The Sovereign XL series has 4 burners and drop down shelves. Please check the CPSC press release
for more information on the recalled gas grills.
Consumers are advised to immediately stop using the grill and contact Onward Manufacturing at (866) 434-7455 for a free repair kit, or visit their website at www.broilkingbbq.com
