Over 3,000 MR. STEAK Gas Grills sold at Bass Pro Shops, Cabela's and ABT Appliance & Electronics stores nationwide and online have been recalled due to a fire hazard. Read on for the specific recalled products and what to do if you own one.

The safety issue with these grills involves a gas regulator hose with attached fuel gauge that can melt if it comes in contact with the bottom of the grill’s firebox, posing a fire hazard. Fortunately, there is a repair available.

There have been nine reports of grill fires although no injuries or property damage have been reported.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission recall notice, the recall "involves four and five burner models of MR. STEAK propane gas grills, models MS-4B-PG, SKU 2472264 and MS-5B-PG, SKU 2472265, that have both a fuel gauge and a fuel line that is not attached to the inside of the grill. The grills are stainless steel with black trim and have four or five black and red dials. The words “MR. STEAK” are printed below the thermometer on the grills’ lid. The recall also applies to SKUs 2366916 and 2366917 if the consumer added an aftermarket fuel gauge to the regulator assembly. A label on the inside of the left compartment door or on the back of the grill identifies the model number of the grill. The SKU is printed on the purchase receipt."

The recalled grills were sold at Bass Pro Shops, Cabela’s, and ABT Appliance & Electronics stores nationwide and online at basspro.com and cabelas.com. The sale dates occurred from May 2017 through July 2019. The four burner grill sold for approx. $500 and the five burner grill sold for approx. $600.
