CSA International and Char-Broil Announce Recall of Gas Grills to Replace Temperature Gauges

March 19, 2004

In cooperation with CSA International, Char-Broil of Columbus, Georgia, is voluntarily recalling approximately 1,000 gas grills to replace temperature gauges. If moisture enters the gauges, the glass cover may break, posing a risk of injury to those nearby. Char-Broil is aware of 30 reports of gauges breaking, including 12 incidents of consumers who reported minor injuries.

The voluntary product recall of outdoor gas barbeque grills includes three series of grills: The Commercial Series, Professional Series and Stainless Steel Series. The specific component involved in the recall is the temperature gauge mounted on the grill lid. The Commercial Series models are constructed from both painted metal and Stainless Steel. The Professional Series and Stainless Steel Series models are Stainless Steel construction.

  • The Commercial Series gas grills have model numbers 4632210, 4632215, 463221503 and 463231503. The units are sold with three main burners – with or without a side burner – and either a metal front panel or a cabinet with doors.
  • The Professional Series gas grills have model numbers 4632235, 4632236, 4632240 and 4632241. These grills are sold as propane (LP) or natural gas units and employ three or four main burners – with or without a side burner – and a cabinet with doors.
  • The Stainless Steel Series by Char-Broil gas grill has model number 4632220. This grill is sold with three main burners and an open stainless steel cart.

The grill model number is located on a label on the back panel of the storage cart. Char-Broil grills with model numbers other than those identified above are not included in this recall.

The products were sold in Canada at Rona, Wal-Mart Canada, Backyard Lifestyles and Westburne Quebec Electrical from January 2002 to present.

Owners of these grills can contact Char-Broil Grill Service Center toll free at 866-239-6769 anytime to receive a free replacement temperature gauge. Consumers should not use the grill until the replacement gauge has been installed.
