CPSC, Marshall Gas Controls Announce Gas Regulator Recall

Washington, D.C.-In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, and Transport Canada, Marshall Gas Controls, a division of S.H Leggitt Company of San Marcos, Texas, recalled about 25,000 Marshall model 250 Automatic Changeover LP gas regulators. Some of these regulators may leak propane gas, which is highly flammable and could ignite.

The model 250 is an automatic changeover regulator used to regulate liquid petroleum gas pressure in conjuction with two LP-gas cylinders in certain residential, marine and recreational vehicle applications (i.e., travel trailers, campers and fifth-wheel units). Marshall manufactured the regulators from January 1994 to July 1994 and distributed them through recreational vehicle manufacturers, parts distributors, and retail liquid petroleum gas suppliers.

Warning: Liquid petroleum is highly flammable. Consumers should not attempt to disconnect the regulator.

Consumers who own regulators with date codes "4 94" through "30 94" in two small, raised circles on the back of the unit should discard or destroy the product. The firm is no longer in business and a remedy is no longer available.
