Products manufactured according to substandard standards may inadvertently cause extensive injury or death to its owner, says Alabama liability attorney Keith T. Belt .
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Stok, today announced a voluntary recall of the following consumer product: Stok Island and Quattro Gas Grills manufactured in China. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. The regulator on the grill can leak propane gas, which can ignite, posing fire and burn hazard to consumers. 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 has a round grill base and two burners. “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. “STOK” is printed on the grill’s lid. To identify whether a specific Island or Quattro grill is included in this recall, you will need to look at the grill’s regulator. The recalled grills have regulators on them with the model number “AZF” on the front and a date code between 1046 and 1143 on the back of the regulator.
The Importer, One World Technologies Inc. of Anderson, S.C. sold about 87,600 Units in the U.S., and the consumers should immediately stop using the recalled grills and contact One World Technologies for a free replacement gas regulator for the grill.
