A massive kerosene recall is being aided by the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency because of the difficulty in reaching communities that do not use modern forms of communication. The Amish and other religious groups rely on kerosene to aid in their cooking and in heating their homes. Communities like the Amish do not have televisions and may not be aware of the recall. PEMA is working with community groups and volunteers to inform those who may not be aware of the recall. The recall which was issued Wednesday spans parts of four states. The size of the recall was decided because Pittsburgh Terminals corporation could not determine the extent of the danger posed by the improperly mixed kerosene.
