The propane exchange cylinders could leak gas, posing a fire hazard

Worthington Enterprises of Columbus, Ohio, is recalling about 146,160 EVAS 20 lb. propane exchange cylinders.

The propane exchange cylinders could leak gas, posing a fire hazard.

No incidents or injuries are reported.

This recall involves EVAS 20 lb. propane exchange cylinders with model number EVAS – M0859, a serial number beginning with a “W,” and a date code of either “06-23” or “07-23.”

The model number, serial number, and date code are stamped on the collar of the cylinder.

While the cylinders were initially sold with an AmeriGas label, consumers could have exchanged these cylinders with other propane distributors who would have then placed their own branded sleeve/label on them.

The cylinders, manufactured in Turkey, were sold at AmeriGas’ propane cylinder exchange suppliers in New Hampshire and Eastern Massachusetts (Boston Metropolitan) area from July through August 2023, or from a propane cylinder exchange supplier thereafter, for between $20 and $80.

What to do

Consumers should stop using the recalled cylinders immediately, close the top valve completely and return them to any AmeriGas Propane Exchange retail location for a free replacement.

Consumers can find exchange retail locations at https://www.amerigas.com/locations/find-propane.

Consumers may contact Worthington toll-free at (888) 520-1304 Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. (ET), by email at propanecylinders@realtimeresults.net, or online at https://www.recallrtr.com/PropaneCylinders for more information.
