Elkhart, IN — About 39,000 bottles of Marshall Gardens PatioGlo Bio-Fuel Gel by Marshall Group are being voluntarily recalled for burn and fire hazards the defective product poses to consumers. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and the Marshall Group announced the nationwide recall on October 11, 2011.

The recall was issued after it became apparent that the pourable gel fuel can ignite unexpectedly, causing the consumer and those around them to become burned when the fuel is poured into a firepot that is still burning.

Three people have reportedly been hospitalized with burns as a result of the pourable gel fuel.

The CPSC reported, “This recall involves pourable gel fuels packaged in 32 oz. clear plastic bottles and sold with or without citronella. The label on the container says ‘PatioGlo bio-fuel gel’ or ‘Citronella PatioGlo.’ The fuel is poured into a metal cup in the center of ceramic firepots or other decorative lighting devices and ignited.”

The following products are included in this recall:

• Size: 32 oz.

• Model #: PG-32

• SKU: 845095015023

• Size: 32 oz.

• Model #: PG-32 (Citronella)

• SKU: 845095015030

Consumers are advised to return all bottles to the company for a full refund.
