Masterbuilt Recalls LP Gas Smokers Due to Fire Hazard
The recalled smokers were sold at Army, Air Force Exchange, Cabela's, Gander Mountain, and other stores nationwide
Masterbuilt has recalled approximately 41,000 Masterbuilt and Cabela's 7-in-1 gas smokers. The smoker's gas hose can disconnect, posing a fire hazard.
The recalled Masterbuilt 7-in-1 smoker comes in green or stainless steel with a Cabela's logo, or black with a Masterbuilt logo. The three-piece cylindrical body design consists of a lid, center body, and base which sits on the LP gas burner stand. It also has a porcelain flame disk bowl, water bowl, cooking grates, 10- quart pot and basket, thermometer, burner, a PVC hose, and weighs about 32 pounds.
The recalled smokers were sold at Army, Air Force Exchange, Cabela's, Gander Mountain, and other stores nationwide and online from April 2011 to October 2016 for about $150 to $200.
Thus far, Masterbuilt has received five reports of the PVC gas hose becoming disconnected during use, including one report of property damage from a fire. There have been no reports of injuries, to date.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled smoker and contact Masterbuilt at (800) 489-1581 for a free replacement rubber LP gas hose.
