The plastic insulator located within all recalled Pro Ambient Temperature Probes and Pro Meat Probes manufactured between May 2014 and June 2014 are susceptible to melting and falling into food, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

As an accessory to the varying iGrill sets, the probes contain curved stainless steel rods that are linked by a steel braided cable to miniature connector. The plastic insulators are located within these stainless steel rods.

With an estimated 48,500 units in the U.S. and 510 units in Canada, 11 reports recorded no injuries, but confirmed the plastic insulator overheated during normal use. The suggested remedy is to immediately stop use and contact iDevices for a courtesy replacement.
