CPSC, Snow Peak USA, Inc., Announce Recall of Gas Camping Stoves to Replace Pumps
Quote:
WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announces the following recall in voluntary cooperation with the firm below. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.

Name of product: Snow Peak Giga Power White Gas Camping Stove, GS-010

Units: 1,886

Manufacturer: Snow Peak USA, Inc., of Clackamas, Ore.

Hazard: Plastic parts in the pump connected to the camping stove can crack or become dislodged. When exposed to extreme temperature change, the blue plastic shrinks around the aluminum parts and has been observed to crack the outer plastic housing. The air tube on some of the pumps can become unglued and dislodged. Both of these failures can permit gas to leak.

Incidents/Injuries: Snow Peak has received 17 reports of cracked or dislodged pumps. No fires, property damage or injuries have been reported.

Description: This recall involves the Snow Peak Giga Power White Gas Stove GS-010. The stove is a white gas camping stove with an output of 10,000 BTU. The stove’s main feature is that it will ignite without priming. Model numbers are located on the instruction manual. The brand name “Snow Peak” is on the front base of the stove, two of the four support legs, and the fuel bottle.

Sold at: Camping and outdoor recreation stores nationwide from August 2001 through June 2004 for about $150. The pump was sold separately for about $40. See www.snowpeak.com for a list of retailers.

Manufactured in: Japan by Snow Peak Inc.

Remedy: Consumers should return the pump to the store where purchased or to the firm for a free replacement pump. To return the pump to Snow Peak USA, please call customer service for Snow Peak’s UPS account number and a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) number to add to the outside of the box for quicker turn-around time.

Consumer Contact: Call Miyoko at 503-697-3330.
