Norfolk, Virginia Injury Lawyer Reports: Chinese Made Gas Grills are Recalled
More than 4,500 portable gas grills manufactured by a Chinese company have been recalled after it was discovered they can leak gas, leading to fires.
Uni-O Industries has recalled 4,530 O-Grill portable gas grills, after receiving 10 reports of grills catching fire. No injuries or property damage were reported, according to the Sacramento Bee.
O-Grills have been recalled
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, according to the report, is still interested in receiving incident or injury reports that are either directly related to the product recall or involve a different hazard with the same product.
As experienced Norfolk , VA injury attorneys, we are concerned about any product defect. Products that can lead to burns are particularly alarming. Many Chinese made products also have a very poor safety record.
In later 2011, the Consumer Product Safety Commission revealed it was investigating cheap Chinese-made cigarette lighters after evidence some of them were exploding causing numerous injuries and at least one death.
Our lawyers have reported on numerous recalls in recent months with the potential to cause personal injury. Recently we noted how General Motors has recalled more than 4,000 Chevrolet Sonics after it was found some of these cars were missing brake pads, a potentially fatal flaw.
Whether it’s grills, lighters or cars, manufacturers are failing to take adequate care leaving themselves open to a defective products, personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.
