Cobb America Inc. Warns Charcoal Grill Purchasers of CO Hazard
In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Cobb America Inc., of Deerfield Beach, Fla., is voluntarily recalling about 2,000 Cobb Premier Charcoal Grills. Like all charcoal grills, this grill emits carbon monoxide gas, which can kill within minutes when used indoors. The Web sites, recipe book, and visuals in a promotional video create the impression that the Cobb Cooker can be used indoors. The recipe book says that it can be used on your dining room table, and the promotional video showed a man carrying the grill into the house while the charcoal was still burning.
