Could one of the Moderators make this a sticky please?

YSN Imports (Flame King) Recalls Refillable Propane Cylinders Due to Fire, Explosion Hazards - https://www.cpsc.gov/Recalls/2017/YSN-Imports-Recalls-Refillable-Propane-Cylinders

This could be a matter of life and death to the others like me who switched to these tanks.  I receive a notice from Amazon because that's where I purchased mine, but many were purchased at brick and mortar stores and the owners will not be directly notified.

Thanks,

Mark

i almost switched to those tanks because I thought they would be safer than refilling the throw away cylinders.guess I will  keep my little green ones still.ive refilled for over 10 years without much problems except some leaky valves.

I almost bought these also last winter.  No injuries yet, just loose connections, according to the manufacturer. 

"The firm has received two reports of the connecting valve starting to unscrew from the cylinder. No injuries have been reported."
