CPSC issues recall of Fu San Machinery gas valves

More than 160,000 gas valves are being recalled because, federal authorities say, they can crack. 

Consumer Products Safety Commission officials say the Fu San Machinery valves were used in flammable gas piping systems, in commercial or residential settings.   They were sent to distributors from April 2011 through June 2012 and were sold for as much as $20 each.

Consumers with the valves are advised to turn off the gas until a replacement valve is installed.    For more details, call, toll free, 1-855-779-9200.
