Residents in Michigan's Upper Peninsula who may have purchased a grill at the Mills Fleet Farm Stores should stop using the grill immediately

May 27, 2008 - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the Char Broil company announced a voluntary recall of a Char Broil Two-Burner gas grill Model 463720108. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately until a replacement burner is installed.

The main burner does not fit correctly and does not connect properly to the gas valve which could result in a propane leak. This poses fire and burn hazards to consumers.

This recall involves the Char-Broil gas grills with model number 463720108 and serial number ranging from 000001 to 000402. The gas grills have a main burner with two-burner plates, a 170 square inch swing-away rack, two side shelves and a condiment basket. Char-Broil's logo is on the top of the lid of the grill. The serial and model numbers are located on the white rating label on the back of the horizontal support of the grill.

These products were sold at Mills Fleet Farm Stores in states including Minnesota and Wisconsin from February 2008 through April 2008 for about $120. Residents in Michigan's Upper Peninsula who may have purchased a grill at the Mills Fleet Farm Stores should stop using the grill immediately and contact Char-Broil for a free replacement burner and installation instructions.

For additional information, contact Char-Broil at 866-671-7988 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or visit the Char-Broil's website.
