Bond Shreveport Outdoor Fire Fountain

Product description

This recall involves the Bond Shreveport Outdoor Fire Fountain. The product measures 24 inches in diameter, and can be identified by model number Y97138 and UPC 034613971389. This product is used as an outdoor decorative accent featuring fire and water.

Hazard identified

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 fuels.

Health Canada's inspection program found the recalled product does not have the required labelling to address flame jetting hazards, according to the ASTM F3363-19 Standard Specification for Unvented Liquid/Gel Fuel Burning Portable Devices, or equivalent. As a result, the recalled product could contribute to a flame jetting incident and lead to serious illness, injury or death.

Health Canada's inspection program also found the recalled product does not meet the labelling and packaging 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 recalled product poses an aspiration hazard when the intended fuel is ingested. Aspiration into the lungs can occur when the fuel enters the lungs directly or is coughed up or vomited after being ingested. This coughing/vomiting could cause small particles of the fuel to travel into the lungs. The lack of child-resistant packaging and appropriate labelling information could result in unintentional exposure to the fuel and lead to serious illness or injury, including death.

As of June 17, 2021, the company has received no reports of incidents or injuries in Canada.
