Worthington Recalls Map Cylinders- 2/23/2012
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada, in cooperation with Worthington Cylinders announced a voluntary recall of Map Pro, Propylene and MAPP Gas cylinders. The reason for the recall is that the seal on the cylinders can leak after torches or other fuel consuming equipment are disconnected from them, posing a fire hazard.
The cylinders contain propylene gas and are used for soldering, brazing, cutting and welding. They contain 14.1 oz Map-Pro, 14.1 oz Propylene or 16 oz MAPP (Methyl Acetylene Propadiene Stabilized). The cylinders are approximately 3” in diameter and 11” tall and are either yellow or black in color. They were sold alone and in kits that include a torch and a cylinder.
