About 7,500 100-pound Propane Cylinders has been recalled by Manchester Tank & Equipment Company of Elkhart, Ind. Fuel can leak from the thread connection between the cylinder and valve, posing a fire hazard if exposed to an ignition source. The recalled Manchester Tank & Equipment Company cylinders included in the recall were manufactured January through September 2012. The date of manufacture is printed on the collar by month and year, so “6 * 12″ represents June 2012. The name Manchester and the water capacity “WC238#” are also pressed into the collar. These gray 100-pound DOT propane cylinders measure about 41″ high and about 15″ in diameter. Manchester 100-pound propane cylinders with a green dot on the hand-wheel on the top of the cylinder are not included in the recall.
Consumers should stop using the propane cylinders and call Manchester or go to the company’s website for instructions on having their gas cylinder inspected by a qualified propane equipment dealer and repaired if needed. A list of propane equipment distributors, RV distributors and retail distributors are listed on the Manchester’s website at www.mantank.com on the “Distributors” page.
