Napa Home & Garden has recalled pourable NAPAfire and FIREGEL gel fuel products due to the possibility of fire and burn concerns.
The potential for consumers to suffer burns or fire risks may arise when the gel fuel is added to a still burning firepot, fireplace or other designated lighting accessory because it may ignite unexpectedly and splatter onto people or objects nearby.
Approximately 460,000 NAPAfire and FIREGEL gel fuel products were sold nationwide at Bed Bath & Beyond, Restoration Hardware, furniture stores, Amazon.com, home and garden catalogs and through other various outlets from December 2009 to June 2011 for $5-$78. The gel is sold in either clear one-quart or one-gallon plastic containers and is available as citronella or unscented.
Napa Home & Garden is currently aware of 23 accounts of related burn injuries to consumers. Consumers are encouraged to discontinue use and return the unused portion of fuel gel to the place of purchase for a full refund. Customers may also contact Napa Home & Garden at 1-888-893-2323 Monday through Friday from 9am to 6pm EST on the internet at www.napahomeandgarden.com for more information.
