fire threat prompts recall of barbecues - natural gas grills
Carnival barbecue in Brampton, Ontario.
Voluntary recall of certain barbecues has been announced due to fire or burn hazards.
In the Blue Ember Gas Grill using propane or natural gas, about 34,000 of the grill with models gf50057 and gf50069 are part of the recall.
Carnival barbecues say the devices may be improperly assembled to expose the burner hose to an overheated environment and can pose a risk.
Carnival received 16 reports of barbecue fires in Canada that may have been caused by burner hoses placed behind the heat shield.
There were no reports of injuries.
From November 2007 to June 2008, barbecues were sold at various family centers and retailers.
