FHS Retail Recalls FUUL Lamp Oil Products Due to Failure to Meet Child-Resistant Packaging Requirement and Violation of FHSA Labeling Requirement; Poisoning Risk to Children
The product contains low-viscosity petroleum distillates which must be in child-resistant packaging, as required by the Poison Prevention Packaging Act (PPPA). The packaging of the product is not child resistant. Petroleum distillates can get into the lungs causing chemical pneumonia and/or pulmonary damage which can be fatal. In addition, the label on the products violates the Federal Hazardous Substance Act (FHSA) by omitting mandatory information on the packaging.

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.
