WASHINGTON, D.C. In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Flat Rock Grill Co., of Powhatan, Va., voluntarily recalled about 1,800 gas grills. The glass casing of the thermometer displays attached to these grills can break or shatter, posing a risk of cuts or other serious injuries to consumers.

Flat Rock Grill Co. had received six reports of the glass casing of the thermometers on these grills breaking. No injuries have been reported.

These heavy-duty, stainless steel grills are Flat Rock Grill Shoreline Series Models 2000 and 3000. The model number is written on a label on the front of the grill. FRG is on the front of the grill. The grill has a thermometer display on the grill hood that measures 3-inches in diameter, and has a temperature range from 50 to 550 degrees. The thermometer display has "BBQ-1" or "BBQ Pit" Thermometer written within the glass casing.

Independent retailers in the southeastern and south central U.S. and the firm's web site sold these gas grills from July 1999 through July 2002 for about $1,200. Consumers should remove the thermometers on these grills immediately.

The firm is no longer in business and the remedy to replace the thermometer is no longer available. Please discard or destroy the thermometer.

Thermometers with the word "Trend" written within the casing are not included in the recall.
