Missing ingredient prompts propane recall in 14 states

If you bought propane gas -- or got it delivered -- between February 25 and September 30 of last year, be warned: Distributor Aux Sable announced a massive recall today, after it was discovered that some of the gas they shipped (sold under a variety of brands) was missing the odorant that allows people to smell a leak. From WalletPop:

The fuel was sold to consumers under a variety of brands in Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Vermont and Virginia.

If your most recent purchase of propane occurred between Feb. 25 and Sept. 30, you are urged to contact Aux Sable at (866) 473-7612 or visit the recall site to see if you're affected and eligible for a free inspection.

From the recall website:

Consumers in the affected states whose most recent propane gas purchase or delivery was between February 25, 2010 and September 30, 2010 should immediately contact Aux Sable to arrange for a free inspection. If there is insufficient odorant, additional odorized propane or a replacement portable propane cylinder will be provided free of charge.
