Blue Rhino Propane Class Action Settlement
By Matt O’Donnell
Blue Rhino has reached a class action lawsuit settlement over allegations it sold pre-filled propane tanks as “full” when they were actually two pounds less than indicated. As a result, anyone who purchased or exchanged a pre-filled Blue Rhino propane gas tank between 2005 and 2011 can file a claim to receive as much as $150 cash from the class action settlement.
The proposed Blue Rhino settlement will resolve a class action lawsuit, entitled In Re: Pre-Filled Propane Tank Marketing and Sales Practices Litigation, that claims Blue Rhino, together with certain competitors, reduced the amount of propane gas in the cylinders it sold without disclosing this to customers and without disclosing the actual fill of the cylinders. Blue Rhino denies any wrongdoing but has agreed to settle the case to avoid ongoing litigation.
Under the Blue Rhino propane tank class action settlement, Blue Rhino has agreed to provide cash refunds to consumers who file valid and timely claims. Class Members of the Blue Rhino settlement include all persons who purchased or exchanged one or more Blue Rhino pre-filled propane gas cylinders, not for resale, in the U.S. between June 15, 2005 and October 11, 2011.
Class Members who have proof of purchase can receive $7.50 for each Blue Rhino propane tank they purchased or exchanged during the class period, up to a maximum refund of $150. Class Members without proof of purchase will receive a one-time payment of $7.50. This amount may be reduced, depending on how many people file valid claims.
To receive your share of the Blue Rhino propane class action settlement, you must submit a valid claim form no later than May 23, 2012.
