According to news sources, a recall has been issued for about 29,026,000 units of Map Pro, Propylene and MAPP Gas Cylinders after it was found that the recalled product posed a fire hazard to consumers.
The voluntary recall was announced by the company, Worthington Cylinders Wisconsin, LLC, due to the cylinders containing a potentially faulty seal that could end up leaking after the fuel consuming equipment is detached from it. The recalled cylinder products have been sold in kits as well as stand alone products, have a retail price range between $45 to $75 for the kits, and $7 to $13 for the stand alone models.
Consumers with the recalled product should stop using it immediately. Consumers may also return the recalled cylinder product to the place of purchase to receive an exchange or full refund amount.
