No-Spill Gas Can Recall: Risk of Leaks, Fires and Burns

About 7,500 No-Spill gas cans have been recalled because they have been found to leak, which could lead to a fire and potentially severe burns for users.

The gas can recall was announced on Thursday by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). The gas could leak fuel at the black plastic collar where the spout connects to the can. There have been no injuries reported in connection to the defective gas cans.

The No-Spill 5-gallon Gasoline Cans were manufactured by No-Spill LLC of Lenexa, Kansas. They are made of heavy-duty red plastic and all of the affected cans have date codes of AIP09202 through AIP09222, located on the bottom of the can, but not all cans in the date code are affected. The recall announcement recommends that consumers test their gas cans to see whether they leak.
