CO safety warning over Belling, Stoves and New World gas grills

The Office for Product Safety and Standards (OPSS) has issued a safety warning relating to the use of gas grills on certain Belling, Stoves and New World gas range cookers manufactured by Glen Dimplex Home Appliances (GDHA).

If the gas grill is used with the door closed, there is a risk that dangerous levels of carbon monoxide can build up, posing a significant risk of serious injury or death to those within the immediate environment.

Models affected by this safety warning include 110cm, 100cm and 90cm models and may have been purchased at any time between 2010 and 2022.

OPSS has issued safety requirements to GDHA, which is writing to all consumers reminding them to only use their gas grill with the grill door fully open.

OPSS chief executive Graham Russell said: “I urge consumers to ensure the door is always kept fully open when the grill is in operation, and remind all consumers of the importance of following the safety instructions for their gas cookers. Glen Dimplex has issued this warning following instructions from OPSS. We will monitor their actions and hold them to account.”
