Approximately 118,000,000 gallons of propane gas sold in the U.S. and Canada has been recalled due to insufficient odorant levels, according to a February 12 report from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
Reports said the Propane (LP) Gas manufactured by Crescent Point Energy Corp. may not be easily detected by consumers when a leak takes place due to the weak odorant levels. Gas is required to include enough odorant for consumers to be able to smell the product right away in the event of a leak.
The affected propane gas was distributed for personal and commercial consumption. Consumers are at risk of suffering serious injuries from burns or explosions if they fail to detect leaking propane gas. Though the Canadian company has not received any reports of incidents involving the recalled propane gas, they asked consumers to immediately notify their gas supplier and to refrain from examining the tanks by themselves.
