Masterbuilt recalls gas smokers for fire hazard

(Consumer Product Safety Commission)

HARRISBURG, Pa, (WHTM) – Masterbuilt is recalling about 41,000 gas smokers sold at Cabela’s, Gander Mountain, and other stores because the gas hose can disconnect and start a fire.

The company has received five reports of the PVC gas hose disconnecting during use, including one report of property damage from a fire, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission. There have been no reports of injuries.

The recalled 7-in-1 smoker comes in green or stainless steel with a Cabela’s logo, or black with Masterbuilt logo. They were sold from April 2011 to October 2016 for about $150 to $200.

Consumers should contact Masterbuilt for a free replacement hose.
