Bic lighter my husband lit it sitting down about by his waist far from himself and it flared up and started his hair on fire.
Same thing happened to me with a different brand lighter about a month ago, it burned my hair and forehead but it did not start on fire.
I have used lighters since 1974 and 2 incidents in just a month tells me that they
are not making the lighters safe. Since you, or someone has made it almost impossible to buy matchbooks it is making it difficult for people to have alternatives. Yes you can buy kitchen matches but they can easily break and then the lit part flies off.
I will never use a lighter again but others need to be warned and protected.
The UPC code on the lighter is: 0 70330 60663 0
