In 2017 FlameKing launched a voluntary recall of a select group of their original 1lb refillable propane cylinders due to a manufacturing quality problem. The problem was related to the assembly of the components, not the design.
Since that time, FlameKing updated their patented valve design and we continue to offer the Little Kamper 1lb refillable propane cylinder exchange at our 13 Kamps Propane locations and 2 High Country Propane locations.
If you have a Flameking 1lb refillable cylinder with a production serial number within the range of 0 – 20,801, that cylinder is included in the voluntary recall. Bring it to any of our offices and we’ll gladly exchange it for a pre-filled non-recall replacement at no charge.
Here’s is the information provided by FlameKing at the time of the recall.
July 18, 2017
Dear Valued Customer,
We recently received reports that you purchased a one pound refillable cylinder which is subject to a product recall. The refillable cylinders include:
|Brand||Size||Color||Serial Number Range|
|Little Kamper||16 oz.||green||000001 through 020800|
The serial number is stamped in the foot ring of the cylinder. These refillable cylinders may not contain sealant and that could cause the propane gas to leak, posing a fire and explosion hazard.
Our supplier of these suspect refillable propane gas cylinders, Flame King, is working with the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) to voluntary recall the suspect cylinders.
STOP using the product if it contains any of the above referenced serial numbers and Flame King will be sending you a replacement refillable cylinder with further instructions. To reach Flame King to receive the replacement cylinders, please see contact information below:
- 1-855-215-4970 [to be provided] between the hours of 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. EST Monday through Friday, excluding holidays.
- YSN Imports, Inc. will offer consumers a replacement or refund for the value of the recalled item.
If you have any questions please contact Flame King at 1-855-215-4970.
