Ceramic fire pots have recently become a popular way to light the night and repel bugs. Unfortunately, a number of people have been seriously burned when these fire pots explode or spill on or near them.
Subsequently, a pourable fuel gel recall has been issued by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission regarding Napa Home and Garden’s NAPAfire and FIREGEL as a result of numerous reports of serious burn injuries. This recall does not extend to fire gel produced by another company, Bird Brain, Inc., though burn injuries have also been reported in relation to this product.
