November 5, 2015

Federated Co-operatives Limited (FCL) has greatly narrowed down the number of Co-op locations that may have received propane from a supplier that did not contain the property safety odour additive.

FCL has been investigating the matter since it, along with other propane retailers in Western Canada and the United States, received notice last week that propane supplier Crescent Point Energy may not have added the safety odour that alerts people to a potential leak. The potential issue is described in this Health Canada alert.

Next steps

Another update will be provided soon on how Co-op will address the potential propane safety odour issue at select locations.

Customers who are concerned about the status of their propane can visit Co-op’s Propane Safety page, which shares more information on safe propane handling.
