Recall Details
Description:

This recall involves under-odorized propane (LP) gas delivered to consumers’ storage tanks or sold at retail locations in portable cylinders (for use in recreational vehicles, barbeques, stoves and other appliances). Propane tanks that have been inspected for the level of odorant or have been refilled after November 2017 are not affected.

Remedy:

Consumers should not attempt to test the propane themselves. Instead, consumers who have propane delivered to storage tanks should immediately contact their supplier or Western Gas to determine whether their propane is affected and arrange for a free inspection. If the inspection confirms the propane contains insufficient levels of odorant, Western Gas will promptly arrange for additional odorization or replacement of the under-odorized propane. Consumers who have purchased a portable cylinder should contact the retailer or the Western Gas hotline to determine whether their propane may be affected and if so, return the cylinder to the retailer for a replacement. If consumers do smell even a faint odor of gas or a gas leak, they should immediately leave the building and call 911 or their gas supplier from a neighbor’s phone. Do not light a match, turn on a light or switch on anything electrical.
Incidents/Injuries:

None reported
Sold At:

Distributed in Colorado, Montana, Nebraska, South Dakota and Wyoming, delivered by various companies and sold by various retailers from April 2015 through October 2017.
Manufacturer(s):

Western Gas Partners LP, of The Woodlands, Texas

U.S.
Recall number:
18-073

I worked in the maintenance department at a large chemical plant for a little over a decade. One day there was an urgent message over the radio and intercom. There had been a release of the chemical mercaptan, the one used to add the smell to natural gas and the announcement was to let everyone know it wasn't a natural gas release. The gas is distributed through an underground pipe system without the smell and it is added by the consumer. We also had some truly terrifying releases to keep us on our toes.
