Pourable Gel Fuel Recall Expands Yet Again
Bird Brain Recalls Pourable Gel Fuel Due to Burn and Flash Fire Hazards.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission this week announced that yet another company is recalling a gel fuel product due to burn and flash fire hazards. This time the brand is Bird Brain pourable gel fuel. As a Western New York and Buffalo product liability attorney who is currently representing those injured by these type of products, I am concerned that not all companies have issued a recall.
The CPSC reports that “The pourable gel fuel can ignite unexpectedly and splatter onto people and objects nearby when it is poured into a firepot that is still burning. This hazard can occur if the consumer does not see the flame or is not aware that the firepot is still ignited. Gel fuel that splatters and ignites can pose fire and burn risks to consumers that can be fatal.”
In this case, 1.6 million bottles have been sold packaged in 16-ounce, 32-ounce, and 64-ounce plastic bottles and sold with or without citronella oil. The labels on the container say “Bird Brain Firepot Fuel Gel” or “BioFuel Fuel Gel.” The bottles were sold as single bottles and in multiple-bottle packages.
