Recall on Bird Brain Fuel Gels Due to Burn Hazard


Posted on Oct 13, 2011

According to a news report from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Bird Brain is recalling certain fuel gels due to a burn hazard, resulting from a flash fire. If you have been seriously injured by a defective product, seek legal counsel in Philadelphia with a defective product attorney.

Approximately 1.6 million bottles and cans of: 
 

  • firepot fuel gel;
  • firepot citronella fuel gel; and
  • biofuel fuel gel made by Bird Brain are being recalled due to the pourable fuel unexpectedly catching fire. 

 This can lead to the fuel splattering on people or objects, while it's being poured into a burning firepot.

If the user does not know that the firepot is still ignited or doesn't see the flame, it could lead to a serious, potentially fatal fire.

So far there have been 20 reports of occurrences, with 11 of them involving 1st, 2nd or 3rd degree burns.

The pourable fuel gel comes in either metal cans or bottles, in a variety of sizes (16 oz, 32 oz and 64 oz). They were sold at Target, K-Mart, Sears and other major retailers.

Consumers are advised to immediately stop using the product and return it for a full refund.

If you were injured by a defective product, then your next step should to be to seek help from a Philadelphia defective product attorney.
