PhotoSaber Grills of Columbus, Ga., is recalling about 26,500 gas grills and 3,400 warranty parts and conversion kits sold in the U.S. and Canada.

The grills’ LP regulator can allow gas to flow at a higher pressure than intended, which can result in a gas leak and flame burst from the burner knobs, posing fire and burn hazards to consumers.

The firm has received 35 reports of regulators malfunctioning, including three reports of singed arms and two reports of burned or singed hair.

This recall involves Model RA329 LP regulators with a date code in the range of 1120 to 1344, which were:

  • sold with certain SABER LP grills, warranty part kits, and natural gas to LP conversion kits;
  • installed as warranty or service parts in certain other SABER LP grills; or
  • installed in SABER natural gas grills and burners if they have been converted to use LP instead of natural gas.

The following model numbers are being recalled:
