From Health Canada:

This recall involves Indoor/Outdoor & Citronella Pacific Flame Bio-Ethanol Gel Fuel. The following gel fuels are included in this recall.

-Citronella Pacific Flame Bio-Ethanol Gel Fuel

-Indoor/Outdoor Pacific Flame Bio-Ethanol Gel Fuel

The fuel gels are in 946 mL white plastic squeeze bottles with dispenser cap. The fuel is poured into a stainless steel cup in the centre of firepots or other decorative lighting devices and then ignited.

The pourable gel fuel can ignite unexpectedly and splatter 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. Fuel gel that splatters and ignites can pose fire and burn risks to consumers that can be fatal.

Neither Health Canada nor Pacific Décor Ltd. has received any reports of incidents or injuries related to the use of these gel fuels in Canada.

Consumers should immediately stop using the products and return all bottles to the place of purchase for a full refund.
