Lawsuits – Serious Injuries Regarding Gel Fuel Products

As you may have heard, on September 1st, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a voluntary recall of all pourable gel fuels. Several companies are recalling their gel fuel products because of the risk of flash fires and burns they have caused. There have been 37 reported accidents nationwide with 23 resulting in injuries. Iowa alone has had four reported cases in the last 30 days.

The recall involves more than two million units of pourable gel packaged in one-quart plastic bottles and one-gallon plastic jugs. The fuels are sold in scented and unscented varieties and were sold by the following companies:

•· Bird Brain Inc., of Ypsilanti, Mich.

•· Bond Manufacturing of Antioch, Calif.

•· Sunjel Company (2 Burn Inc.) of Milwaukee

•· Fuel Barons Inc. of Lake Tahoe, Nev.
