RECALL: Propane gas recalled due to fire, explosion hazard

(WAFB) - Keyera Energy is recalling propane gas due to potential fire and explosion hazards, reports the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The company says the recalled gas does not contain sufficient levels of odorant to help alert consumers to a gas leak. Failure to detect a leak can of course result in fire, explosion, and thermal burn hazards.

The recalled gas is used in storage tanks or sold at retail locations in portable, refillable cylinders for use in grills, stoves, RVs, etc.

About 1.7 million gallons of propane gas were recalled. Consumers should not attempt to test the propane themselves. Instead, consumers should immediately contact Keyera Energy at 844-879-8419 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., or contact the retailer or supplier where they obtained the propane to get a free inspection.

The recalled propane was distributed in Texas and Louisiana by various companies between February and April of 2018.
