DOT recalls hazardous cylinders manufactured by The Lite Cylinder Company

The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) has issued a sweeping recall of all propane and gas cylinders manufactured by The Lite Cylinder Company, Inc., of Franklin, TN --  which are marked as if they were authorized by the DOT -- because those cylinders might be hazardous due to their leaks or damages.

“PHMSA finds that the affected packaging constitute or are causing an imminent hazard to public safety,” says an emergency recall order published by the agency in the Federal Register on June 6.

The agency ordered that all of the cylinders produced by Lite Cylinder that have been marked with certain DOT authorization numbers should be returned to the manufacturer within five business days.

The PHMSA notice includes a long list of incidents in which damaged or defective cylinders ruptured or leaked, and allegedly caused physical harm to their users.

Back in October 2012, the agency suspended Lite Cylinder’s permits and special approvals to manufacture a variety of cylinders, including certain 10-pound, 20-pound, 25-pound and 33-pound versions.

“Under no circumstances should a cylinder described in this emergency recall order be filled, refilled, or used for the transportation of hazardous materials,” says the notice.
