WASHINGTON, April 20 (UPI) -- The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a voluntary recall of STOK Gas Grills due to risk of injury and fire.

About 87,600 gas grills sold in the United States and 1,400 sold in Canada put consumers at risk, the commission said. The regulators on the grills can leak propane gas, which can ignite, posing fire and burn hazard to consumers.

The company has received more than 569 reports of regulators leaking propane gas. None of these have included reports of injuries, the commission said.

The recall involves STOK Island and STOK Quattro gas grills.

The STOK Island has a round grill base and two burners. "STOK" is written on the grill cover and a label on the bottom of the grill stand.

The STOK Quattro gas grill is rectangular. It has four burners. "STOK" is printed on the grill's lid.

Only grills with regulators with the model number "AZF" on the front and a date code between 1046 and 1143 on the back of the regulator are included in the recall.

The grills were sold nationwide and across Canada from March 2011 through February 2012 for between $79 and $350.

Consumers were advised to stop using the recalled grills and contact One World Technologies for a free replacement gas regulator.

Consumers can call 800-867-9624 for information.
