About 5,600 Cooks Outdoor® BBQ Grills have been recalled by the importer JCPenney Purchasing Corp., of Plano, Texas. The drip pan on the grill does not allow for adequate drainage, posing fire and burn hazards to consumers. The firm has received 11 reports of fires resulting from inadequate drainage. This recall involves Cooks® brand outdoor BBQ grills. The grill has a digital thermometer on the hood, stainless steel top and a global LP regulator. Lot number 780-2176 is printed on the underside of the grill’s stand. They were sold by JCPenney stores nationwide and online at www.jcp.com from February 2009 through September 2009 for between $190 and $600.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled grills. To ensure the grills are not useable, consumers should remove the gas regulator and hose assembly. All consumers (whether they purchased the item online or at a JCPenney retail stores) should return the regulator and hose to the Catalog/Customer Service Desk at any JCPenney store for a full refund. Consumers should contact JCPenney for instructions on how to disconnect the gas regulator and hose.
