Copied verbatim from PBN (OK< so once in a while they have some good info!):

PLEASE NOTE, This is information on a recall of luxfer tanks that has recently been updated by the DOT
Quote:
Luxfer and its independent inspection agency, Arrowhead Industrial Services, Inc. (Arrowhead), reported to PHMSA that 6,325 high pressure cylinders manufactured to the DOT CFFC and FRP-1 standards as authorized in DOT-E 10915, DOT-E 9634, and DOT-E 9894, had been shipped from Luxfer without undergoing the required autofrettage and hydrostatic tests. In a joint effort, Luxfer and Arrowhead have retrieved 2,581 of the untested cylinders. PHMSA has compiled a list of all model and serial number markings of the remaining cylinders identified by Luxfer and Arrowhead that were not properly tested prior to distribution. Information provided to PHMSA indicates many of these cylinders are being used as self-contained breathing apparatus, in paint ball applications, and in aircraft slide service. Any person possessing a cylinder manufactured by Luxfer and marked with exemption number DOT-E 10915, DOT-E 9634, or DOT-E 9894 and marked with one of the serial numbers listed in this notice should take the cylinder to a qualified refilling station and have the pressure relieved from the cylinder. The cylinder should be returned to Arrowhead Industrial Services for autofrettage and hydrostatic testing before further use. Refilling stations and cylinder requalification facilities are advised that any cylinders marked with DOT-E 10915, DOT-E 9634, or DOT-E 9894 should be checked against the attached list of serial numbers before they are filled or requalified for service. To make arrangements to have an affected cylinder autofrettaged and hydrostatically tested, contact Arrowhead Industrial Services, Inc., 3537 South NC 119, P.O. Box 1000, Graham, NC 27253; telephone (336) 578-2777.

This safety advisory covers only the high-pressure DOT exemption cylinders manufactured by Luxfer that have a model number and serial listed on the attached list. Not all cylinders manufactured by Luxfer under DOT-E 10915, DOT-E 9634, and DOT-E 9894 are affected.
