Portable gas stoves recalled due to fire hazard

January 18, 2021 By    

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) issued a recall notice for about 20,600 units of Camp Chef portable gas stoves. An internal part of the gas regulator component can have a sharp edge that can wear or tear a hole in the seal, causing gas to leak out of the top of the regulator and posing a fire hazard.

This recall involves Camp Chef portable gas stoves with model numbers MS40A, MSHP or MSGG and with component gas regulators date coded “1923” through “2030” inclusive.

The model number is located on the manufacturer’s label on the bottom of the stove. The gas regulator date code is engraved on the regulator.

The MS40A stove is aluminum with the Mountaineer name printed on the front. The MSHP is black and red with Everest 2X printed on the front. The MSGG is black and red with the Rainer 2X logo printed on the front. All stoves have the Camp Chef logo embossed on the lid.

Camp Chef has received 26 reports of gas leaking from regulators, according to the CPSC. No injuries have been reported.

The products were sold at sporting goods stores and Walmart stores nationwide from August 2019 through September 2020 for between $150 to $300, depending on the model.

The CPSC advises consumers to stop using the recalled Camp Chef stoves immediately and contact Camp Chef to obtain a free gas regulator replacement kit.
