Hot News: Jetboil Recall

jetboil-200x148In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Jetboil has announced a voluntary recall of certain Jetboil Personal and Group Cooking Systems.

Jetboil has used three gas valves (the “A”, “B” and “C” style valves) in the production of its Personal Cooking System (PCS) and Group Cooking System (GCS).

Units with the B style valve, which have been sold since July 10, 2008, are affected. According to Jetboil, “a very limited number of end users” have experienced leaking gas and a fire. No injuries or property damage have been reported by these users.

Other PCS and GCS systems continue to be fully safe and functional. No Helios systems are affected by the recall. For details and to determine if your Jetboil is affected, go to
