CPSC, Creative Technologies Announce 60 Second Grill Voluntary Recall

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S.Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Creative Technologies, of Brooklyn, N.Y., announced a recall of approximately 15,600 Sixty Second Grill Express Grills, model G250 out of a total of 250,000 grills. The heating element in the grill's base can become dislodged, melting the grill's plastic base.

CPSC is aware of two incidents of the grill melting, neither of which involved injury.

The white plastic grills measure 11 inches long, 7.75 inches high, and 11.25 inches deep. The grill lid is attached to the base by two hinges and has the words "GRILL EXPRESS BY CTC" printed on the front right corner. Retail stores, mail order catalogs, and television infomercials sold the grills nationwide from October 1994 to January 1995 for about $99 to $140.

This recall involves grills, model number G250, with the date codes numbering between 9437 and 9448 located just above a silver foil label on the underside of the grill. Consumers who have difficulty reading the date code should rub the date code with the side of a pencil to better highlight it.

Consumers who own the recalled grills should stop using them and discard or destroy the product. The firm is out of business and a remedy is no longer available.
