Robertshaw Recalling Valves, Heads

Robertshaw Controls Co. in Carol Stream, Ill., is voluntarily recalling more than 123,000 TS-11 thermal safety control valves and 37,350 magnet heads.

The recall applies to all TS-11 thermal safety control valves produced between February 2003 and August 2004, along with certain TS-11 components (magnet heads) produced between the same dates wherever sold, including outside the United States.

The products involved can be identified by date codes 0306 through and including 0432. The valves are used in commercial cooking equipment, including ranges, griddles, fryers and warming trays. The date codes are on a white label affixed to the back side of the valves’housing, below the red button.

The recall was spurred, the company said, because if the pilot light in products that use the valves goes out, the valves could stick in an open position, permitting gas to continue to flow. This could result in a gas explosion and fire, which can potentially result in severe personal injury and/or property damage.
