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 alcohol-based fuels.

The recalled products do not meet the labelling requirements for consumer chemical container products sold with the intention of being filled with a hazardous chemical product, as required by the Consumer Chemicals and Containers Regulations, 2001, under the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act. The portable firepots also do not have the required labelling according to the ASTM F3363-19 Standard Specification for Unvented Liquid/Gel Fuel-Burning Portable Devices. As a result, it could contribute to a flame jetting incident and/or unintentional exposure to the product and lead to serious illness, injury or death.

As of May 13, 2021, the company has received no reports of incidents in Canada and no reports of injuries.

What you should do

Consumers should immediately stop using the products and obtain a correct label at a Kitchen Stuff Plus Inc. location. Consumers may then continue to use the product with the new recommended fuel type.
