The products are being recalled due to a potential material defect, which could cause the cylinder to deteriorate over time and lead to a gas escape. There have been no consumer incidents reported at the time of publishing.

Calor has announced that a full replacement 6kg CalorLite cylinder will be issued entirely free of charge if the customer is returning a cylinder as part of the recall. If you have any questions regarding the recall, Calor has set up a dedicated phone line: 0800 783 4141.
