CSA International and Weber-Stephen Products Co. announce a voluntary recall of Genesis(R) 320(TM) Series Gas Grills

    TORONTO, March 19 /CNW/ - In cooperation with CSA International,
Weber-Stephen Products Co. of Palatine, Illinois announces the voluntary
recall of approximately 2,580 Weber(R) Genesis(R) 320(TM) Series Gas Grills.
The gas hose attached to the side burner of the grill can crack or break
during shipping, causing it to leak gas when in use, which poses a fire hazard
to consumers.
    Weber has received 49 reports in the U.S. of hose damage or gas leaks. No
injuries have been reported.
    This recall involves only the Weber(R) Genesis(R) 320(TM) Series gas
grills which are designed to be used with either natural gas or with liquid
propane gas tanks, and are equipped with a flush-mounted side burner
accessory. The gas hose is made of stainless steel. The grills are sold in
stainless steel and in black, blue or green porcelain enamel. All serial
numbers begin with the prefix "DI". The model and serial numbers are located
on the tank blocker/drip pan holder located inside the storage cart.

    Only the following product names and model numbers are included in this
    Product Name                      Model Numbers
    Genesis(R) CEP-320(TM)            3751701; 3752701; 3851701

    The grills were sold at various home improvement and hardware stores
nationwide from November 2006 through February 2007.
    Consumers who have an affected grill should stop using the grill
immediately and contact Onward Manufacturing Company Ltd., Weber-Stephen's
exclusive Canadian distributor to obtain a free replacement gas hose and
schedule a free installation. Call Onward toll-free at (800) 265-2150 between
