The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration has issued a recall of propane cylinders manufactured by The Lite Cylinder Company Inc., of Franklin, Tenn.
The emergency order is based on an investigation of Lite Cylinder’s operations and production history that revealed probable violations and unsafe conditions and practices that PHMSA determined present an imminent hazard to the public safety. These cylinders are largely in liquefied petroleum gas service.
According to Patrick Young, public information officer for Clallam County Fire District 3, "It may be possible that cylinders by this company are in use in the peninsula area for the storage of propane on BBQ grills."
If you have one of the company's cylinders, call the Office of the State Fire Marshal at 360-596-3900 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
