CPSC recalls containers of gel fuel for potential "burn dangers."

The AP (6/22/11) reported the Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the recall of 460,000 containers of gel firepot fuel Wednesday, saying "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." Known incidents and injuries have occurred when consumers refilled the pots' fuel cups and couldn't "tell whether the flame in the firepots, which can burn blue or clear with little smoke, is completely extinguished." Last week, Rep. Tim Bishop and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand called for a countrywide recall of all types of liquid fuel for firepots.
