STOK Gas Grills are being recalled for propane leaks, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Health Canada (HC) just announced.
About 87,600 STOK Gas Grills have been recalled in the United States; another 1,400 STOK Gas Grills have been recalled in Canada.
The STOK Gas Grills were manufactured in China; imported by One World Technologies Inc. of Anderson, South Carolina; and sold at Home Depot stores, nationwide, and in Canada and Direct Tools Factory Outlet stores, nationwide, from March 2011 through February 2012. The recalled STOK Gas Grills sold for between $79 and $350.
The regulator on the STOK Gas Grill can leak propane gas, which can ignite, which poses a fire and burn hazard to consumers. To date, the firm is aware of 569 reports of regulators leaking propane gas. No injuries have been reported.
This recall involves STOK Island and STOK Quattro gas grills. The STOK Island Gas Grill is constructed with a round grill base and two burners. The word “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. The word “STOK” is printed on the grill’s lid.
To identify whether a specific Island or Quattro grill is included in this recall, look at the grill’s regulator. The recalled grills’ regulators bear model number “AZF” on the front and a date code between 1046 and 1143 on the back.
The firm advises consumers to immediately stop using the recalled STOK Gas Grills and contact One World Technologies for a free replacement gas regulator for the grill.
