According to Health Canada, a fire or burn hazard, called flame jetting, occurs when fuel vapours around a poured fuel stream ignite when a user refuels a portable fire product that is still burning or hot, and a flame is not readily visible. This can result in a burst of flaming fuel being rapidly expelled out of the container and travelling a distance dangerous to the operator and/or bystanders.

Flame jetting occurs very quickly, so the operator and/or bystanders are unable to react quickly enough to move away from an incoming flame jet when utilizing the product in a reasonable manner expected with its intended design and anticipated use.

There have been numerous reported incidents of serious injuries, including fatalities, in Canada from flame jetting events. Please visit this page for more information on flame jetting and portable products that use pourable alcohol-based fuels: https://www.canada.ca/en/health-canada/services/household-products/flame-jetting-risk.html.
