The tanks can leak gas which could lead to a possible fire hazard.

The recall involved the EVAS 20lb. propane exchange cylinders with model number EVAS-M0859, a serial number that starts with the letter “W” and a date code that either has “06-23″ or “07-23″ on it, the CPSC said. The cylinders were first sold with an AmeriGas label but some of them were exchanged with other propane distributors. Those propane distributors would have put their own labels on them.

The recalled propane cylinders were sold at AmeriGas’ propane cylinder exchange suppliers in New Hampshire and Eastern Massachusetts, the CPSC said. They were sold from July 2023 through August 2023 or from a propane cylinder exchange supplier after that. They cost between $20 and $80.

The CPSC recommends that if you have one of the affected propane cylinders involved in the recall, stop using it, close the top value and return it to an AmerciGas Propane Exchange retailer for a free replacement. Visit the Amerigas website for a location near you.

No injuries have been reported.
