TAMPA, Fla. — Bass Pro is recalling a popular propane gas grill because it poses a potential fire hazard.
The recall involves four and five burner models of MR. STEAK propane gas grills.
The problem involves the grill's fuel gauge and fuel line. Officials say the gas regulator hose with attached fuel gauge can melt if it comes in contact with the bottom of the grill’s firebox.
Bass Pro received nine reports of grill fires occurring due to the defect. No injuries or property damage have been reported.
The recall involves model numbers:
- MS-4B-PG, SKU 2472264
- MS-5B-PG, SKU 2472265
The grills are stainless steel with black trim and have four or five black and red dials. The words “MR. STEAK” is printed below the thermometer on the grills’ lid.
The recall also applies to SKU numbers 2366916 and 2366917 if you added an aftermarket fuel gauge to the regulator assembly.
You can find the model number on a label on the inside of the left compartment door or on the back of the grill. The SKU number is printed on the receipt.
The recalled grills were sold from May 2017 through July 2019 at Bass Pro Shops, Cabela’s and ABT Appliance & Electronics stores nationwide and online at basspro.com and cabelas.com for about $500 for the four burner grill and $600 for the five burner grill.
Approximately 3,300 grills were sold in the U.S. and additional 400 in Canada.
