Jetboil Recall

Leaky valve on certain models could pose fire hazard

Jetboil, makers of that magical all-in-one wilderness stoves so many of us love so much, have issued a recall in conjunction with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission certain models of their popular personal and group cooking systems. Apparently, a faulty valve could allow gas to leak, which could become an obvious fire hazard.

Recalled models include: Personal Cooking Systems in black (PBL075-BLK-(PCS) and camo (PBL075-CAMO-(PCS), Backcountry Gourmet Set (BDLFRY), Personal Cooking System with Companion Cup (BDL001), Personal Cooking System with Pot Support & Stabilizer (BDL002), Personal Cooking System with Coffee Press (BDL003), and Personal Cooking System Java Kit (BDLJAVA) and Group Cooking System (GCS150).

Luckily, no injuries or fires have been reported—Jetboil found the problem before anyone immolated themselves on tight bivy.

Several models of Jetboil remain unaffected, which is a good thing, since I take mine to bed with me sometimes. What, you don't?
