The portable fuel bottles do not meet the child-resistant requirements for closures under the Children's Gasoline Burn Prevention Act (CGBPA). The closure for the products is not child-resistant, posing a risk of burn and poisoning to children.
This recall involves BRS Fuel Bottles, portable liquid fuel bottles sold in 530mL, 750mL and 1000mL sizes manufactured prior to July 2023. The bottles are orange with a black cap and white text. “BRS,” “fuel bottle,” and the bottle’s volume warnings and/or directions appear in white lettering on the bottle’s surface.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled fuel bottles, place them out of reach of children, and contact OAREA Outdoor Gear for information on how to return or dispose of the product to receive a full refund.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risk of injury or death associated with the use of thousands of types of consumer products. Deaths, injuries, and property damage from consumer product-related incidents cost the nation more than $1 trillion annually. CPSC's work to ensure the safety of consumer products has contributed to a decline in the rate of injuries associated with consumer products over the past 50 years.
Federal law prohibits any person from selling products subject to a Commission ordered recall or a voluntary recall undertaken in consultation with the CPSC.
