Coleman Recalls Series 2000 and 3000 Gas Grills

Coleman Gas GrillWitchita, 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.
