Keyera Energy Recalls to Inspect 1.7 Million Gallons of Propane Gas Due to Fire and Explosion Hazards
The recalled propane does not contain sufficient levels of odorant to alert consumers to a gas leak
Keyera Energy is recalling about 1.7 million gallons of propane (LP) gas for inspection.
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.
The affected propane gas was 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 gas was also sold to businesses for commercial and industrial use.
Keyera Energy does not sell propane directly to any retailers or consumers, but supplies propane to distributors that then sell the gas to retailers and consumers.
Where and when was it sold?
The propane gas impacted by this recall was distributed in Texas and Louisiana by various companies and sold by retailers between February 2018 and April 2018.
No incidents or injuries related to this recall have been reported, to date.
What should consumers do?
Consumers should not attempt to test the propane for proper odorant levels 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.
Smell gas? Get out!
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.
For more information, consumers should contact Keyera Energy at (844) 879-8419.
