The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and No-Spill LLC issued a voluntary recall of the No-Spill 5-gallon Gasoline Cans. People who own these products should stop using them and contact the manufacturer.
The recall was issued because the gas containers may leak fuel where the spout is attached to the can. Obviously this is may be extremely dangerous to the consumer.
There are approximately 7,500 of the cans in circulation, bearing manufacturer numbers of AIP09202 through AIP09222, though some cans in that range are not on the recall. The cans were purchased from August through November, 2009.
Thankfully, no one has reported an injury due to this malfunction as of yet.
CPSC encourages consumers to contact them with reports of injury due to this product. CPSC’s website or call (800) 638-2772 for more information. Owners are being encouraged to contact the manufacturer for a free replacement gas can.
