Saber Grills has received 35 reports of regulators malfunctioning, including 3 reports of people who suffered singed arms and 2 reports of burned or singed hair. According to the recall notice:
The grills’ LP regulator can allow gas to flow at a higher pressure than intended, which can result in a gas leak and flame burst from the burner knobs, posing fire and burn hazards to consumers.”
The recall involves Model RA329 LP regulators with a date code in the range of 1120 to 1344, which were sold with Saber LP grills, warranty part kits, and natural gas to LP conversion kits.
The grill model number is on a label under the grease tray. The regulator date code is stamped on the regulator adjacent to the gas tank connection. The regulator model number is on the regulator.
The recalled grills and regulators were sold at stores nationwide, including Family Leisure, Fortunoff Backyard Store, Watson’s, Bed Bath & Beyond, Frontgate, and online from September 2011 through May 2017 for between $800 and $2,000.
