Gas Regulators Recalled for Leak Hazard

Fisher Controls International, of McKinney, Texas, is recalling about 142,000 Fisher Model R622H 1st stage LP gas regulators. Gas can leak from the regulator when the diaphragm pulls inward into its casing, posing a fire or explosion hazard to consumers. FCI has received one report involving a fire in a tobacco barn.

The recalled gas regulators were manufactured from June 2006 through January 2008 and installed on LP-gas supply systems in homes and small commercial buildings. FCI sold the equipment to LP-gas dealers nationwide from June 2006 through January 2008. For a list of model and type numbers involved in the recall, visit www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prhtml08/08561.html.

Consumers who had an LP-gas system installed with a recalled regulator should immediately contact the company that provides their LP-gas services to determine if they should receive a replacement regulator installed free-of-charge. Regulators marked with a "D" near the inlet fitting are not part of this recall and do not need to be replaced. Dealers that purchased and installed the recalled regulators have been notified of the recall directly and instructed to replace the regulator. The companies will contact consumers with the recalled regulators. Consumers who have not been contacted directly and wish to determine if they have a recalled gas regulator should call their gas supplier directly. For additional information, contact FCI toll-free at (888) 237-1751, or visit www.fisherregulators.com.
