The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is recalling about 700 rail cars of Propane (LP) Gas manufactured by Aux Sable Liquid Products, of Morris, Ill. and sold in portable cylinders and delivered to storage tanks.
Some of this propane does not have sufficient levels of the odorant that is added to propane to help alert consumers to a gas leak. Failure to detect leaking gas can present fire, explosion and thermal burn hazards to consumers.
No injuries have been reported.
The propane was sold at the propane retailers in the following states: Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Vermont and Virginia from February 25, 2010 through September 30, 2010.
Consumers in the affected states whose most recent propane gas purchase or delivery was between the dates listed above should immediately contact Aux Sable to arrange for a free inspection. If there is insufficient odorant, additional odorized propane or a replacement portable propane cylinder will be provided free of charge.
For additional information, contact Aux Sable toll-free at (866) 473-7612 any time or visit the propane alert website at www.PropaneGasAlert.com.
