Nine different manufacturers and distributors of pourable gel fuel have announced the recall of their products due to flash fire and burn hazards. When consumers add the pourable gel to an already burning pot the gel can ignite unexpectedly and splatter onto nearby people and objects.
There have been 65 incidents reported concerning the gels, with 34 victims hospitalized with second and third degree burns and two fatalities.
The full list of manufactures can be found on the CPSC recall page.
Consumers who currently own any of the recalled portable gel fuel should not attempt to use or fix the pourable gel fuel bottles or replace the fuel with any other flammable substitute.
