Saber Grills Recalls Grills and LP Regulators Due to Fire and Burn Hazards
The grills’ LP regulator can allow gas to flow at a higher pressure than intended, which can result in a gas leak and flame burst from the burner knobs, posing fire and burn hazards to consumers.
Saber Grills toll-free at 866-671-7988 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. ET Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. ET Saturday, or online at recall.sabergrills.com for more information.
This recall involves Model RA329 LP regulators with a date code in the range of 1120 to 1344, which were:
- sold with certain SABER LP grills, warranty part kits, and natural gas to LP conversion kits;
- installed as warranty or service parts in certain other SABER LP grills; or
- installed in SABER natural gas grills and burners if they have been converted to use LP instead of natural gas.
The model number of the grill is located on a rating label located on the underside of the grease tray. The regulator date code is stamped on the regulator adjacent to the gas tank connection, and the regulator model number is on the center of the regulator. Model numbers included in this recall are listed below.
