Emergency Recall Underway For Gas Cylinders Made In Tennessee
The US Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration has issued an emergency recall for cylinders of commonly-used compressed gas. More than 55,000 of the cylinders in question under the recall are made by Franklin, Tennessee-based Lite Cylinder Company, Incorporated. They are used for stoves and other equipment that use propane fuel. The PHMSA issued the recall after an investigation revealed unsafe conditions and practices at Lite Cylinder’s manufacturing plant. The company has been prohibited from making more cylinders and has been ordered to contact anyone who purchased them.
