Evergreen Enterprises recently announced a recall of their pourable gel fuel. The company is not aware of any reports of incidents involving Fireside Gel Fuel. 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.
The recalled pourable gel fuels were manufactured by 2 Burn Inc. This recall involves pourable gel fuels packaged in 30-ounce plastic bottles and sold with or without citronella oil. The words “Fireside,” “Gel Fuel,” “Evergreen,” and “Flag & Garden” are on the container labels. The bottles were sold by the case in quantities of 12. The gel fuel is poured into a stainless steel or ceramic cup in the center or class firepots or other decorative lighting devices and ignited. The two products being recalled are Fireside Fuel Gel (Model 5G001, UPC 74685158199) and Fireside Fuel Gel-Citronella (Model 5G002, UPC 746851581205).
Approximately 23,400 bottles of pourable gel fuels were sold in the United States at independent retailers from December 2010 through September 2011 for between $9.99 and $11.99.
According to the recall notice, consumers should immediately stop using the pourable gel fuel and return the gel fuel to the company for a full refund.
