Thousands of heating boilers with potential to cause CO poisoning recalled

Posted on Tuesday, January 14th, 2014 at 4:10 pm    

Over 26,000 house heating boilers have been recalled by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) due to risk of carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning, an article on Thursday, January 9 stated.

The recall involves at least 26,000 units of gas-powered heating boilers made by U.S. Boiler and at least 191 units made by New Yorker Boiler. The CPSC explained that the recalled boilers may discharge a hazardous amount of carbon monoxide if the air pressure switch malfunctions when turning off the burners and causes a blocked vent.

Incidents of carbon monoxide poisoning involving the boilers were not reported before the recall.

Homeowners who have the recalled home burners are advised to contact the manufacturers from whom they bought the items for a zero cost check and repair.
