Mitre 10 still recalling BBQ

Last month, Amalgamated Hardware Merchants Ltd and Mitre 10 (New Zealand) Ltd voluntarily recalled a 4 Burner Hooded Black BBQ due to concerns it could be a fire risk if not assembled correctly. 
Another recall has been put out just last week for the un-branded 4 Burner Hooded Black BBQ, sku 295689 and model number: G11400.
It was sold by Mitre 10 MEGA stores and selected Mitre 10 and Hammer Hardware stores between October 2016 and April 2017.
The Post Newspaper was able to confirm with Mitre 10 MEGA staff in Pukekohe last month that five BBQs have been sold during this time.
“We have identified that if the regulator hose that connects the BBQ to the gas bottle is not correctly tightened, gas may leak out which could cause a fire. Customer safety is paramount to us and we are recalling all of these
BBQs as a safety measure,” the company said.
Customers should cease using the BBQ immediately and return the product to their nearest Mitre 10 or Mitre 10 MEGA store. A full refund will be given.
Customers can obtain the address of their nearest Mitre 10 store by calling 0800 4 MITRE 10 or by visiting

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
