We have a Frigidaire Gallery Model FSG 447GHSO (possibly "0" Zero not "o")Gas dryer.
We have owned it for 2.75 years and it runs daily at least one load. Over the last year there has been a more and more frequent occurance of clothes getting trapped in the edge between the drum and the gasket to the drum. There appears to be a void at the top of drum. Clothes are getting caught and heating up enough that they are getting burn marks. I'm thinking that I have a possible fire hazard on my hands.
Has anyone else seen this, fixed it, or know if there is a recall?

Quite possibly the top drum seal and drum slides (see the link below) are worn (quite common) and allowing the drum to drop slightly. Replacing them may solve any drum alignment problem.

** [is] there a recall? **

No, just part of normal wear and tear that probably should have been looked into when it was first noticed a year ago.
