The following recall has been announced:



DETAILS: Master Forge Gas Grills imported by LG Sourcing Inc. of North Wilkesboro, N.C. and manufactured by Guangdong Vanward Electric Co., Ltd. of China; sold exclusively at Lowe's stores nationwide from November 2011 through May 2012. The four-burner gas grills have a single-door base and "Master Forge" written on its hood. The model number is located on a label inside the door of the grill's base.

WHY: If improperly installed, the hose connecting the gas tank and regulator to the burner control can touch the burner box and cause the hose to melt and rupture when the grill is lit, posing a fire and burn hazard.

INCIDENTS: Guangdong Vanward is aware of two reports of hoses melting and rupturing. No injuries reported.

HOW MANY: About 37,000 in the United States.
