On November 20, 2009, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and No-Spill, LLC, announced a voluntary recall of approximately 7,500 No-Spill 5-Gallon Gasoline Cans. The defective cans can leak fuel at the black plastic collar where the spout connects to the can, which poses a risk of fire and burn hazards.
The recalled gas cans are heavy-duty red plastic with date codes AIP09202 through AIP09222 printed on the bottom of the can. Not all cans are affects, but cans with noticeable leaks are part of the recall.
The 5-gallon cans were sold at lawn and garden stores and hardware retailers nationwide and online from August 2009 through November 2009.
Customers are urged to test their gas cans for leaks and immediately stop using leaky cans. A free replacement can be obtained by contacting No-Spill at 877-928-0049.
