Nearly 20,000 gas grills have been recalled after reports of two people suffering major burns caused by the outdoor cooking appliance.
Paradise Grills reported liquid propane gas can accumulate inside the grill when the lid is closed, posing a fire and burn hazard to users.
The Florida-based company said that it had received two reports of the grill exploding, causing severe burns to the consumers, according to a Thursday release from the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
