Mountain Safety Research Has Recalled Stove Fuel

Seattle, WA (SafetyAlerts) - Mountain Safety Research has recalled about 9,700 cans of white gasoline stove fuel. Corrosion can cause the can to leak fuel, posing a fire or injury hazard.

Mountain Safety Research has received 20 reports of leaking fuel cans. No injuries have been reported.

The recalled fuel includes MSR White Premium Blend Stove Fuel. The fuel is packaged in red metal cans. The words "MSR...White Gas" and "1 Quart/.95 Liter" are printed across the front of the can. This recall includes batch number 2003-2. The batch number is printed on the lower front of the can. The fuel cans were made in the U.S.

REI and other sporting good stores sold the stove fuel nationwide from March 2002 to June 2002 for about $4.

Consumers should check their stove fuel cans for leaks immediately. If the can is leaking, consumers should move it to a location free of ignition sources, then transfer the fuel to an approved fuel container. Whether or not the can is leaking, consumers should contact Mountain Safety Research to receive a replacement fuel container.
