There could be more over-pressurized 20 lbs propane tanks sitting at homes in the Windsor area than what was originally thought.

Since launching an investigation, Ontario’s Technical Standards and Safety Authority has discovered over-filled tanks from the Canadian Tire at 8505 Tecumseh Rd. E that date back to late April.

It was originally thought that the problem began last Friday, resulting in about 101 over-pressurized tanks.

Anyone who’s had their 20 lbs propane tank filled at that Canadian Tire location since April 15 is now being asked to call the store. Trained personnel will be sent to inspect the cylinder and dispose of it, if necessary.
