According to news sources, a recall of about 39,000 bottles of Marshall Gardens PatioGlo Bio-Fuel Gel was announced today by The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
The product, Marshall Gardens PatioGlo Bio-Fuel Gel, is manufactured by Marshall Group, of Elkhart, Ind and is used as a fuel that is poured into fire-pots and other decorative lighting devices in order to ignite.
The recalled products reportedly can unexpectedly expel ignited gel fuel and injure consumers. Pouring onto an already burning fire pot, specifically if consumers fail to notice if the fire pot is still burning is especially dangerous.
The recalled products are 32 oz. in size and have the following model numbers, PG-32845095015023 and PGC-32 (Citronella) 845095015030. They have been sold nationwide since November 2010 up until August 2011 with a retail price ranging between $7,99 to $11.99.
Injuries resulting in burns have been reported. Consumers with the product should contact the company immediately to return the product for a full refund.
