    What to do

    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.

    Consumers may contact Western Gas toll-free at 833-444-1451 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (MT) Monday through Friday, by email at info@propaneawareness.com or online at www.propaneawareness.com.

    Newmar Corporation is recalling 194 model year 2018 Bay Star and Bay Star Sport motorhomes.
