CPSC, Cascade Designs, Inc. Announce Recall of Stove Fuel
Quote:
WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announces the following recall in voluntary cooperation with the firm below. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.

Name of Product: Superfuel Liquid Fuel

Units: About 8,500

Manufacturer: Cascade Designs Inc., of Seattle Wash.

Hazard: A manufacturing defect in the can’s seam and an insufficiently applied fuel cap can cause the can to leak fuel posing a fire hazard.

Incidents/Injuries: No incidents or injuries have been reported. However, CPSC and Cascade Designs discovered and subsequently investigated forty-one leaking cans found in Cascade’s distribution center.

Description: The recalled fuel is used for outdoor cooking stoves. “MSR® SuperFuel™” is printed on the label and is packaged in red metal cans. “SUPERFUEL, MSR Cleanest-Burning Liquid Fuel for MSR Stoves,” and “32 FL OZ/1 Quart/.946 Liter” are printed across the front of the can. This recall includes cans with batch #502-167 printed on the lower back of the can in light black digits.

Sold At: Sporting good stores sold the stove fuel nationwide from March 2005 through April 2005 for about $9.

Manufactured in: United States

Remedy: (1) Consumers should immediately check their stove fuel cans for leaks. If the can is leaking, consumers should move it to a location where there are no ignition sources and then transfer the fuel to an approved fuel container. (2) Consumers should contact Cascade Designs Inc. to receive a replacement fuel container and funnel.

Consumer Contact: For additional information, contact Cascade Designs at (800) 531-9531 between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. PT Monday through Friday or visit the firm’s Web site at www.msrgear.com
