Jetboil has utilized three different gas valves (the “A”, “B” and “C” style valves) in the production of its Personal Cooking System (PCS) andGroup Cooking System (GCS). PCS and GCS units utilizing the B style valve were shipped to US retailers between July 10 and September 9, 2008, and sold through retail since July 10, 2008.
My boyfriend recently bought a JetBoil and it was on the recall list. Fortunately, even though I borrowed it for my past two trips to Joshua Tree (intending to do a review on it), I ended up not using it on either trip because folks just kept offering me their hot water.
Sounds like generosity and chance may have saved me some grief:
We have determined independently to undertake this process after receiving reports and returned units from a very limited number of end users who have experienced leaking gas and subsequent ignition of the gas leak. No injuries or property damage have been reported by these users.
