About 50,000 LDR 1200 Series gas connectors, manufactured in China and imported by Chicago-based LDR Industries Inc., have been recalled because they can leak propane or natural gas. This poses a risk of fires or explosions. No incidents have been reported. The 1200 Series Gas Connectors were sold at hardware stores in Alabama, Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Mississippi, Arkansas, Tennessee and Florida between August and September 2007. The recalled LDR series 1200 gas connectors have 3/8 inch fine thread nuts attached. The connectors are used primarily with gas space heaters. The brass nuts are gold colored while the stainless steel tube is silver colored. Consumers should immediately stop using the appliance with the recalled gas connectors. Only a qualified professional, such as a plumber, heating contractor or gas company technician, should check the connectors and replace them. Contact LDR Industries or the place of purchase for instructions on returning the connectors for a full refund. For additional information, contact LDR at (800) 545-5230 ext. 2345 or visit the firm’s Web site at www.ldrind.com.
