PHMSA ISSUES EMERGENCY RECALL OF PROPANE CYLINDERS BY LITE CYLINDER COMPANY
On May 24, 2013, PHMSA issued an
emergency recall order mandating the recall of all cylinders manufactured by the Lite Cylinder Company and marked as acceptable for use under Special Permit Numbers SP-14562, SP-13957, SP-13105. Lite Cylinder markets 10, 20, 25, and 33 pound propane cylinders, all of which have been recalled for improper testing and frequent flammable propane gas leaks. The order also recalls all cylinders marked as requalified for use under H706 or manufactured under M5729. Effective immediately, Lite Cylinder is prohibited from selling these cylinders and all carriers are similarly prohibited from transporting them until purged. Similarly, the special permits and manufacturer’s qualification and requalification authorities above have also been cancelled. Contact Boyd Stephenson at bstephenson@trucking.org.
