A Florida woman who suffered severe third-degree burns after a bug-repellent burner exploded on her patio several months ago, has filed a lawsuit against Napa Home and Garden Inc. She alleged that the Georgia-based company and several subsidiaries marketed and sold a product that can blow up like napalm even when precautions are taken by the user. The product in question is the Napa FireLite pot, which uses a flammable gel with a lemon scent to promote a mosquito-free ambiance outdoors. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has started an investigation into fire pot gel fuels after a number of similar accidents had been reported nationwide. Ms. Ann B. Boney, the Plaintiff in this case, asked the manufacturer to recall the product. See the Recalls Section of this issue for more information on the recall.
