August 1, 2000Coleman Recalls Series 2000 and
3000 Gas Grills
KS (SafetyAlerts) - In cooperation
with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC),
The Coleman Co. of Witchita, Kan., is voluntarily recalling about 86,000 Coleman Gas
grills. A sharp edge on the metal heat shield below the control panel of the grill can
cause lacerations to the hands, wrists or arms.
Coleman has received six reports from consumers who received cuts or lacerations on their
hands, wrists, or arms from the heat shield when they were accessing the propane cylinder
underneath the grill.
The recalled grills are green and black and have a red Coleman emblem on the grill's
cover. The grill has a wheeled cart with two side tables or one side table and a side
burner, and features a warming rack above the grilling surface. Only grills with series
numbers 2000 or 3000 are included in the recall. The series numbers are on the face plate
of the grill, located on the right hand side of the control panel.
Home improvement and discount department stores sold the grills nationwide from January
through April 2000 for between $350 and $500. Consumers should immediately contact Coleman
toll free at (877) 846-1070 anytime to receive a free repair kit. The repair kit contains
a plastic sheath to cover the sharp edge on the heat shield.
