An internal part of the gas regulator component of the Camp Chef portable stoves has caused the company to recall more than 20,000 of them. The 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, posing a fire hazard, the company explained.
Consumers should stop using the recalled Camp Chef Stoves immediately and contact Camp Chef to obtain a free gas regulator replacement kit, the company announced. When contacting Camp Chef, be sure to use recall number: 21-053.
The recall involves Camp Chef portable 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 manufacturers 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.
