The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration has issued an emergency order mandating a recall of cylinders manufactured by The Lite Cylinder Company. PHMSA also terminated the company’s authority to re-qualify and manufacture DOT cylinders.



The order mandated more than 55,000 two-piece fully wrapped fiber composite cylinders be removed from service. These composite cylinders are commonly used as portable fuel tanks for liquefied petroleum gas (LPG).

Cylinders manufactured by Lite Cylinder with any of the following markings are subject to this recall:

DOT-SP 14562

DOT-SP-13957

DOT-SP 13105 (Only if manufactured by The Lite Cylinder Company. Cylinders manufactured by Composite Scandinavia [M0408] and marked with this number are not subject to the recall)

Any cylinder requalified under requalification approval H706

Any cylinder manufactured under M5729



For questions, call PHMSA’s Hazardous Materials Information Center at +1 800-467-4922.
