LP Gas Smokers Recalled — Fire Hazard
Masterbuilt, an American company, is recalling approximately 41,000 Masterbuilt and Cabela’s 7-in-1 gas smokers due to a faulty gas hose and the associated fire hazard.
About the LP Gas Smoker Recall
According to the Consumer-Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the smoker’s gas hose can disconnect, thus posing a fire hazard. CPSC recommends that consumers immediately stop using their gas smokers and contact Masterbuilt for a free replacement rubber LP gas hose.
Five cases of the PVC gas hose being disconnected, and one instance of property damage from a resulting fire, have so far been reported, though no injuries have been sustained as of yet.
