    I purchased the Fiesta BBQ last year. This summer it caught fire and I was injured putting it out. I told Wal-Mart about this and I told them that I had to dispose of the BBQ because of the fire. I was told by them since I did have a reciept I couldn’t return it because they only do returns for 3 months after purchase. I think this is stupid and I did have the receipt and I was burned, Let me know what I can do ……

    Sally Martin Thanks
