Affected products

This recall involves Model 520 Firepots by Combi Inc. The product measures 6.5 inches in diameter X 6.5 inches in depth X 5 inches in height and is available in black, blue, red or green. Affected products have the following UPC numbers: 752370052218 (Blue), 752370052058 (Black), 752370052225 (Red) or 752370052232 (Green). 

Issue

A fire or burn hazard called flame jetting, occurs when fuel vapours around a poured fuel stream ignite when a user refuels a portable fire product that is still burning, or hot and a flame is not readily visible. This can result in a burst of flaming fuel being rapidly expelled out of the container and travelling a distance dangerous to the user and bystanders. Flame jetting occurs very quickly, so the user and/or bystanders are unable to react quickly enough to move away from an incoming flame jet. Please visit this page for more information on flame jetting and portable products that use pourable fuels.

The recalled product does not have the required labelling to address flame jetting hazards, according to the ASTM F3363-19 Standard Specification for Unvented Liquid/Gel Fuel Burning Portable Devices, or equivalent. As a result, the recalled product could contribute to a flame jetting incident and lead to serious illness, injury or death.

As of July 20, 2021, the company has received no reports of incidents or injuries in Canada.
