RECALL: Worthington Cylinders Wisconsin gas cylinders

Posted:

WASHINGTON (WKOW) --The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada announced a recall for Worthington Cylinders Wisconsin due to a fire hazard.

About 29 million units in the U.S. are being recalled and about 1.3 million units are being recalled in Canada.  The consumer agency says the recall is due to a seal on the cylinders that can leak after torches or other fuel consuming equipment are disconnected from them, posing a fire hazard. No injuries have been reported.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission released the following information Thursday:

The cylinders contain propylene gas and are used for soldering, brazing, cutting and welding. They contain 14.1 oz Map-Pro, 14.1 oz Propylene or 16 oz MAPP (Methyl Acetylene Propadiene Stabilized). The cylinders are approximately 3" in diameter and 11" tall and are either yellow or black in color. They were sold alone and in kits that include a torch and a cylinder. The cylinders and torch kits have a variety of labels, including:
