Bass Pro recalled about 3,700 units of Trek 'Mr. Steak' four and five burner gas patio grills for possible fire hazard, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said in a statement. These include about 400 units sold in Canada.

The company said the gas regulator hose with attached fuel gauge of the grill can melt if it comes in contact with the bottom of the grill's firebox, resulting in a fire hazard.

The recall involves MS-4B-PG and MS-5B-PG four and five burner models of 'Mr. Steak' propane gas grills, which have both a fuel gauge and a fuel line that is not attached to the inside of the grill. The grills are stainless steel with black trim and have four or five black and red dials.

The recall also applies to some of these models where the consumer added an aftermarket fuel gauge to the regulator assembly.

The company received nine reports of grill fires. However, no injury or property damage has been reported.

Bass Pro advised consumers to immediately stop using the product and contact 'Mr. Steak' for a free repair kit.

The grills were made in China and imported to the U.S. by Springfield, Missouri-based Bass Pro, LLC.

They were sold at Bass Pro Shops, Cabela's, and ABT Appliance & Electronics stores across the U.S. online at basspro.com and cabelas.com from May 2017 through July 2019 for about $500 for the four burner grill and $600 for the five burner grill.
