Product liability attorneys alert- No-Spill gasoline cans were recalled due to burn and fire hazards.
Kansas City, OK—No Spill LLC, of Lenexa, Kansas and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) http://www.cpsc.gov have announced a voluntary recall of the No-Spill 5-gallon gasoline cans. Although no injuries or incidents were reported, the product can pose a fire and burn hazard for consumers, as reported by the CPSC.
No-Spill recalled about 7,500 United States-manufactured gasoline cans, which can leak fuel at the black plastic collar where the spout connects to the can, therefore posing a fire and burn hazard to consumers. The recalled product is made from heavy duty plastic with a carry date code of AIP09202 through AIP09222. The date can be located on the bottom on the container; not all date ranges are included in the recall. The gas cans were sold at lawn and garden stores, hardware retailers, and online nationwide from August 2009 through November 2009, for the retail price of $30. At this time no injuries or incidents have been reported. Consumers are advised to test their gas cans to determine whether they leak; if they leak, stop using the can immediately. Consumers can contact No-Spill toll-free at (877) 928-0049 between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, or visit the firm’s Web site at www.nospill.com/recall, to receive a free replacement.
