What’s the Problem?

This CPSC Recall [1] began on March 24, 2021, and affects Flame King Hog 100-pound Propane Cylinders.

“The propane cylinders manufactured with a handle below the weld on the side could leak propane gas, posing a fire hazard,” CPSC said. “No incidents or injuries have been reported.”

The recalled propane tanks are white and have built-in wheels, and feature the serial numbers 000001 through 002800. The UPC 850015730016 and SKU YSN100HOG can be found on the box.

Affected cylinders were imported by Flame King, d/b/a YSN Imports Inc., and sold online from January 2020 through October 2020 for about $250.

Consumers who purchased a recalled propane tank should stop using it and contact Flame King for a full refund or free replacement.

The CPSC Recall Number for this item is 21-100.

How Many Propane Tank Fires Occur Each Year?

Approximately 600 propane tank explosions occur each year in the United States, according to the CPSC. Each of these incidents is different, and is the product of separate circumstances, so it is impossible to accurately predict without examining the facts of each accident. However, some propane tank injuries are more likely to occur than others, such as:

  1. Severe burns – Burn injuries from a propane tank explosion are always extremely painful. While a 1st-degree burn or superficial burn only affects the top layer of skin, 2nd and 3rd-degree burns cause more extensive damage. Burn injuries can take years to fully heal from and cause significant limitations and impairments.
  2. Loss of limb –  If a propane tank explodes when a person is adjusting the tank or otherwise in close proximity, the loss of fingers, a hand, arm, or other limbs is possible.
  3. Shrapnel injuries – The force of an exploding propane tank can eject metal shrapnel from the tank itself and surrounding objects into the air. This debris can cause severe cuts, become lodged in a victim’s eye, or otherwise cause severe injuries.
