The Western Gas recall involves under-odorized propane (LP) gas delivered to consumers’ storage tanks or sold at retail locations in portable cylinders. Propane tanks that have been inspected for the level of odorant or have been refilled after November 2017 are not affected.
The propane may 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.
This recall is something that all subrogation professionals should make note of. Additional information on the recall can be found at the Consumer Product Safety Commission website.
