The Washington Post reported 10 companies are recalling 2 million bottles and jugs of the gel fuel used in outdoor firepots because of the serious risk for potential burns and exploding dangers.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) says the gel fuel has been connected to several dozen injuries when consumers could not tell whether the flame was still burning. Pouring more gel on a burning pot can lead to dangerous flares and severe burns.
