Hazard Identified
If the barbeque grill is not assembled properly, the burner hose may be exposed to excessive heat, posing a fire and burn hazard to users.

In cooperation with the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (US CPSC) and Health Canada, Fiesta Barbeques is voluntarily recalling these barbeques.

There have been 31 incidents of grill fires associated with the use of this barbeque grill in Canada. The information available to Fiesta indicates that 15 of these incidents were possibly related to the hazard identified above. Fiesta is not aware of any injuries resulting from these 15 incidents.

In the United States, Fiesta has received an additional 161 reports of grill fires. These resulted in nine injuries, including 2 incidents of major burns on different parts of the body, 6 incidents of minor burns, and 1 incident involving temporary hearing loss.

Health Canada has not received reports of injuries or incidents related to the use of these barbeques.

Corrective Action
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled grill and contact Fiesta Barbeques to obtain a free grease pan assembly and instructions for installing the parts.

Consumers are also advised to not use the grill until the new grease pan assembly has been installed. Consumers should also inspect the gas burner hose and regulator, which will be replaced free of charge if there are signs of damage.

For additional information, consumers may contact Fiesta toll-free at 1-866-956-0396 between 7AM and 5 PM EST Monday through Friday, or visit the firm's website or contact Fiesta by e-mail at lnguyen@fiestabbq.com.

Consumers may view the release by the US CPSC on the Commission's website.
