Camp Chef Portable Gas Stove Recalled Due Fire Explosion Burn Injuries
CPSC – According to several news sources and lpgasmagazine.com, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has issued a recall notice for approximately 20,600 Camp Chef portable gas stove units. The recall was initiated after it has been reported that an internal part within the stove’s gas regulator component may have a sharp edge that is prone to tear or wear a hole in the seal. When this occurs, propane gas can leak from the top of the gas regulator and cause the unit to explode or catch on fire resulting in serious injuries and burns to the user.
How to Identify the Recalled Camp Chef Portable Gas Stove
This Consumer Product Safety Commission recall affects the Camp Chef portable gas stoves that have the model numbers MS40A, MSHP, or MSGG and has a component gas regulator date coded between “1923” and “2030.” Purchasers can find the stove’s model number located on the manufacturing label that is located at the bottom of the portable gas stove. The component gas regulator date code is located on the regulator and is engraved. The MS40A portable gas stove is constructed in aluminum and has the name “Mountaineer” printed on the stove’s front. The “MSHP” model is black and red and has “Everest 2X” printed on the stove’s front. The “MSGG” model is also black and red in color but has a “Rainer 2X” logo printed on the stove’s front side. All recalled stoves may also be identified by looking for the Camp Chef logo embossed on top of the stove’s lid.
According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, there have been approximately 26 reports of dangerous regulator gas leaks involving the recalled Camp Chef portable gas stoves. Although no injuries have been reported, it is likely that the injuries have been unreported due to the public not being made aware of how to report the incidents and/or how to file a claim for monetary compensation for damages caused by the recalled product.
The Camp Chef portable gas stoves were sold online and at sporting goods stores and Walmart stores throughout the United States from August 2019 until September 2020. Depending on the model purchased, the gas grills sold for between $150 to $300.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission advises purchasers to stop using the defective Camp Chef portable gas stoves immediately and to contact Camp Chef to receive a free replacement gas regulator kit.
