Additional information:
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports this recall involves under-odorized Liquid Propane (“LP”) gas delivered to consumers’ storage tanks or sold at retail locations in portable cylinders (for use in recreational vehicles, barbeques, stoves and other appliances). Propane tanks that have been inspected for the level of odorant or have been refilled after November 2017 are not affected.

Please consult the photograph above for details of the product’s packaging, design and retail presentation. Additional images of the recalled products can be found on the Web site/sites listed above.

==> No barcodes, UPCs, item numbers or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.

According to the CPSC, the recalled Propane Gas may not contain sufficient levels of odorant to help alert users to a gas leak. Failure to detect leaking gas can present fire, explosion and thermal burn hazards.

==> Never depend on your senses of sight, smell, taste or touch to confirm food poisoning, adulteration or contamination. If in doubt about the safety of any food, return it to your retailer for refund or toss it out in your household garbage, making sure neither small children nor household pets can access the suspect food.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Propane Gas, please do not use them. Instead, kindly return the product to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.

If you have any questions about this recall notification, please contact Western Gas toll-free at 1-833-444-1451 from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Eastern Standard Time, Monday to Friday. Alternatively, you can visit the company’s Web site at http://www.propaneawareness.com or by e-mail at info@propaneawareness.com.

You should not attempt to test the Propane yourself. Instead, if you have Propane Gas delivered to on-site storage tanks, you should immediately contact your supplier or Western Gas to determine whether your Gas is affected and arrange for a free inspection. If the inspection confirms the Propane contains insufficient levels of odorant, Western Gas will promptly arrange for additional odorization or replacement of the under-odorized Propane.

If you have purchased a portable Propane cylinder (see photo above) please contact your retailer or the Western Gas hotline to determine whether your Propane may be affected and if so, return the cylinder to the retailer for a replacement. If you do smell an odor of gas — even a faint odor — or detect a gas leak, you should immediately leave the building and call 9-1-1 or your gas supplier from a neighbor’s phone. DO NOT LIGHT A MATCH, TURN ON A LIGHT OR SWITCH ON ANYTHING ELECTRICAL THAT COULD CAUSE AN EXPLOSION.
