To let you know that the BSS has issued a new release and placed information on our website supporting the Calor Gas Ltd and alerting boaters to Calor’s immediate product recall on all 6kg Calor Lite® cylinders manufactured between 2008 - 2011 inclusively.

This follows concerns regarding the potential deterioration of the cylinder.

The key details are on this link http://www.boatsafetyscheme.org/about-us/news-and-press-releases/press-releases/ please feel free to pass this on via your blogs, Facebook and other social media. See @BSS_BoatSafety tweets also

Although Calor Lite® cylinders are mainly sold within the caravan and general markets, we are aware that such cylinders are on sale in the marine sector and that boaters buy the product.

Calor and the BSS would welcome your help with publicising this immediate recall.

Although we will be briefing BSS Examiners shortly in case boat owners raise the issue in conversation, there is no expectation that BSS Examiners will check Calor Lite® cylinders.

I have re-posted Robs original web address

as it seems to have an invalid address of the posted link.

However, one can always cut and paste the link below.

I hope this helps

In order to satisfy myself that I am not affected, I checked www.caravanguard.co.uk On this site it shows where to check the dates of cylinders also where to check that you now have a safe replacement.

Just to update as I changed mine over for the caravan yesterday. There are now many out there that have been checked and safe, if the metal disc at the top of the bottle has a 5 mm drill hole then it has been checked and is safe ( quoted from Calor website). If you have not changed do so quickly as the bottles are in very short supply.
