The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a voluntary recall this week of STOK gas grills. These grills were sold at Home Depot stores nationwide, as well as Direct Tools Factory Outlet between March 2011 and February 2012.
It is estimated that there are about 87,600 of these gas grills in the U.S. These products were imported by One World Technologies Inc. of Anderson, S.C. (manufactured in China).
Hazard: The regulator on the grill can leak propane gas and can ignite, posing fire and burn hazard to consumers. There have been 569 reports of regulators leaking propane gas.
Description: This recall involves STOK Island and STOK Quattro gas grills. The STOK Island has a round grill base and two burners. "STOK" is written on the grill cover and a label on the bottom of the grill stand. The STOK Quattro gas grill is a rectangular, four-burner grill. "STOK" is printed on the grill's lid. To identify whether a specific Island or Quattro grill is included in this recall, you will need to look at the grill's regulator. The recalled grills have regulators on them with the model number "AZF" on the front and a date code between 1046 and 1143 on the back of the regulator.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled grills and contact One World Technologies for a free replacement gas regulator for the grill. For more information, and company contact information on this recall, visit Consumer Product Safety Commission.
