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.
About 14,000 bottles and jugs
Consumers should immediately stop using the pourable gel fuel in firepots and call the toll free hotline for instructions on how to receive a full refund.
