Walmart responds to NBC News investigation of gas cans
Brooke Buchanan, a spokesman for Walmart, responds in a video statement to questions raised by an NBC News investigation of red plastic gas cans. There have been at least 80 lawsuits filed on behalf of individuals severely burned after alleged explosions of gas vapor mixtures inside plastic gas cans. Walmart said it has been named as a defendant in 24 of those lawsuits because it was the seller of the cans involved.
