iDevices Food Thermometers Recalled for Ingestion Hazard

The Consumer Products Safety Commission is recalling iDevices cooking thermometer probes because the plastic insulator inside the stainless steel probe is not heat resistant. The plastic can melt and fall into the food, making it an ingestion hazard.

The recall is for all Pro Ambient Temperature Probes and Pro Meat Probes manufactured from May 2014 through June 2014. The probes were sold separately as an accessory for the iGrill, iGrill2, iGrillmini grilling thermometers and the Kitchen Thermometer and Kitchen Thermometer mini cooking thermometers. The meat probe was sold as a component of the iGrill2 set.

The Pro Ambient Temperature probes are about 6″ long with a metal grate clip on the end. Pro Meat Probes are 6-3/4″ long. iGrill Pro Meat Probes and iGrill Pro Ambient Probes come with either a red or yellow rubber sleeve and an oval black plastic cord holder. Kitchen Thermometer Pro Meat Probes and Kitchen Thermometer Pro Ambient Probes come with a green rubber sleeve and a round white plastic cord holder. Recalled probes have only two indentations, or crimps, in the base of the probe tube where it is attached to the braided cable. You can see pictures of the recalled products at the CPSC web site.
