Char-Broil recalls gas smokers after reports of burn and head injuries

Char-Broil LLC, of Columbus, GA, along with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has issued a voluntary recall of vertical gas smokers. In all, approximately 18,450 units in all are being recalled as they pose an injury hazard to consumers.

According to the recall notice, the smokers were designed with a hose/valve/regulator which does not allow sufficient gas to flow and if the flame is extinguished and reignited, an explosion can occur.

Char-Broil has received reports of doors bursting open and hitting consumers. Reported injuries include burn injuries to the face and head, head concussions and lacerations.

The units were sold at Walmart and other retailers between March 2008 and June 2010.

Contact Char-Broil at (866) 671-7988 between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or visit the firm’s website atĀ www.charbroil.com for a free replacement hose assembly.
