Bass Pro has recalled 3,300 four- and five-burner Mr. Steak gas grills because a gas regulator hose attached to the fuel gauge can come into contact with the firebox, potentially melting in the process, posing a fire hazard. Bass Pro has received nine reports of fires, with no known injuries, and has reported the incidents to the Consumer Product Safety Commission. Consumer Reports hasn’t tested either of the recalled grills.
