WASHINGTON, D.C. – Marshall Group is recalling about 39,000 bottles of Marshall Gardens PatioGlo bio-fuel gel because the pourable gel fuel can ignite unexpectedly to the consumer and expel onto people and objects nearby when it is poured into a firepot that is still burning.
This hazard can occur if the consumer does not see the flame or is not aware that the firepot is still ignited. Gel fuel that expels and ignites can pose fire and burn risks to consumers that can be fatal.
The Marshall Group has received four reports of incidents, resulting in three injuries with burns requiring hospitalization.
This recall involves pourable gel fuels packaged in 32 oz. clear plastic bottles and sold with or without citronella. The label on the container says "PatioGlo bio-fuel gel" or "Citronella PatioGlo". The fuel is poured into a metal cup in the center of ceramic firepots or other decorative lighting devices and ignited. The following products are included in this recall:
|32 oz.||PGC-32 (Citronella)||845095015030|
The fuel was sold at gift shops, home and garden stores, and online stores nationwide from November 2010 until August 2011 for between $7.99 and $11.99.
Consumers should immediately stop using the pourable gel fuel in firepots and return all bottles to the company for a full refund.
For additional information, contact the Marshall Group at toll-free at 855-270-8482 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or visit the company's website
