Fuel containers recalled due to fire risk

About 4,000 one- and two-gallon Enviro-Flo Plus fuel containers, manufactured in the United States by Blitz USA Inc. of Miami, Okla., are being recalled because the plunger cap can dislodge, allowing gasoline vapours to escape and liquid to spill from the top of the container during use. This poses a risk of fires.

The spouts were used on fuel containers with item numbers 81005 (one gallon) and 81010 (two gallon) printed on the labels.

No incidents have been reported. The recalled containers were sold at home improvement, automotive and other stores around the country between June and July 2009. Consumers should immediately empty their gasoline container and contact Blitz for a free replacement spout delivery system.
