Keyera Energy Recalls to Inspect Propane Gas Due to Fire and Explosion Hazards
WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the firm named below, today announced a voluntary recall of the following consumer product. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.
Name of product: Propane (LP) gas
Hazard: The recalled propane gas does not contain sufficient levels of odorant to help alert consumers to a gas leak. Failure to detect leaking gas can present fire, explosion and thermal burn hazards.
Remedy: Replace, Repair
Consumer Contact: Keyera Energy toll-free at 844-879-8419 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. CT, email firstname.lastname@example.org or online at www.keyera.com and click on "Propane Safety Update" on the Corporate Responsibility page or www.keypropaneupdate.com for more information.
Units: About 1.7 million gallons
Description: This recall involves under-odorized propane (LP) gas delivered to consumers for use in storage tanks or sold at retail locations in portable refillable cylinders (for use in recreational vehicles, barbeques, stoves and other appliances). The LP gas was also sold to businesses for commercial and industrial use. Keyera Energy Inc. does not sell propane directly to any retailers or consumers, but supplies propane to distributors that sell directly to retailers and consumers.
Remedy: Consumers should not attempt to test the propane themselves. Instead, consumers who have propane delivered to storage tanks should immediately contact the retailer, supplier or Keyera Energy to arrange for a free inspection. If the inspection confirms that the propane contains insufficient odorant, Keyera Energy will arrange for additional odorization or a replacement of the under-odorized propane. Consumers should have carbon monoxide alarms in homes or other buildings that utilize propane gas. If consumers do smell even a faint odor of gas or a gas leak, they should immediately leave the building and call 911 or call their gas supplier. Do not light a match, turn on a light or switch on anything electrical.
Incidents/Injuries: None reported
Sold At: Distributed in Texas and Louisiana by various companies and sold by retailers between February 2018 and April 2018.
