Has anyone ever experienced a situation where a liquid CO2 cylinder was introduced to a multiple tank, CO2 gas manifold and distribution system?

I recently became aware of this potential problem when it was discovered that the only difference between a small cache of both liquid and gas CO2 cylinders was a small 4" sticker indicating the presence of an siphon tube.  The cylinders have the same valve connection.

I did contact our gas supplier for some insight and explanation regarding the tanks and am awaiting a response. 

Best Regards,
Anthony Santoro
