WASHINGTON, D.C. – The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada, in cooperation with

recalled consumer product.

Name of product: O-Grill Portable Gas Grills

Description: This recall involves Iroda O-Grill models 1000 and 3000 produced before 2010. Some were also sold under the

ventilation slots in the regulator cover are not subject to the recall.
