The New Jersey Department of Community Affairs’ (DCA) Division of Fire Safety today issued an alert that people should immediately stop using kerosene purchased from December 10 to December 18 at any of the stations listed below. The kerosene, if used, could create a potential safety hazard due to a low ignition temperature, which may cause fires in space heaters or other equipment.
New Jersey Stations Affected by Kerosene Recall:
Quinton Riggins: 505 Salem Quinton Road, Quinton, NJ
Pleasantville Riggins: 901 N. New Road, Pleasantville, NJ
Cardiff Riggins: 6710 Black Horse Pike, Egg Harbor Township, NJ

The kerosene is being voluntarily recalled by Philadelphia Energy Solutions, which is headquartered in Philadelphia, Pa., as a result of consumer complaints from a distributor. Gasoline and diesel fuel from these stations is not being recalled, only kerosene.
