Stok Gas grills recalled for fuel leak, fire hazard
One World Technologies, in cooperation with a request from the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission, has announced a voluntary recall for an estimated 89,000 of its gas powered barbecue grills. The recall comes as a response to more than 560 consumer complaints received by One World Technologies product distributors related to leaking regulators. The leaking regulators pose a fire hazard and a severe burn risk, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commision. The gas grills affected by this recall are the Stok Quattro (equipped with four burners) and the Stok Island (a round grill equipped with two burners) model gas powered barbecue grills. These grills are equipped with regulators imprinted with date codes ranging from 1046 to 1143 on the back and model number AZF on the front. These grills were distributed for sale at Home Depot retail hardware stores throughout the United States between March of 2011 and February of 2012 for a purchase price ranging from $79 to $350. One World Technologies has announced plans to send owners of affected grills replacement regulators at no additional cost. Consumers in possession of grills affected by this recall should discontinue their use until a new regulator has been obtained and installed. More information on this recall can be obtained from the Stok Grills website or by calling One World Technologies directly. Knowingly selling a recalled product is forbidden under United States law, according to the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission.
