CPSC and Bradley Technologies Announce Recall of Electric Smokers for Shock HazardJan 28, 2006 | Newsinferno News Staff
The Consumer Product Safety Commission and Bradley Technologies (Canada) Inc., of British Columbia, Canada, are recalling about 560 Bradley Electric Smokers because in addition to the electric cord that plugs into the wall, these units have an electric cord with prongs on both ends that connect the generator to the smoker.
If the unit is plugged into the wall socket and one end of the connecting cord is unplugged, there is an electric shock hazard. Thus, consumers are advised to stop using the recalled products immediately.
The Smokers being recalled were manufactured in China and sold by retailers nationwide, including Sportsman’s Warehouse, Barbeques Galore, Bass Pro, Chez Bubba, from October 2005 through December 2005. The BTIS1 units sold for between $300 and $350 and the BTST02 units sold for between $400 and $450.
There have been no reported injuries or incidents to date.
The recalled electric smokers include models BTST02 (stainless steel) and BTIS1 (black) and consist of a smoke generator, a smoke tower and two power cords. The model number appears on a silver label on the back of the smoker.
The products have a “Bradley Smoker” logo on the door and at the bottom under the red light “Power Indicator.”
The recalled black smokers contain one of the following serial numbers:
0508000110000001 to 0508000110000354
