Home heating boilers that may emit hazardous gas recalled

Posted under Product Liability

At least 26,191 units of home heating boilers have been recalled by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) after they were found to pose a risk of releasing carbon monoxide, a report on Thursday, January 9 stated.

According to CPSC, the recall affects 26,000 gas-powered heating boiler units manufactured by U.S. Boiler and 191 units made by New Yorker Boiler. The commission said the affected boilers may pose a carbon monoxide poisoning risk to homeowners if it discharges large amounts of carbon monoxide should a switch fail to shut the burners down.

Homeowners who have the affected boilers are advised to use a carbon monoxide detector and immediately coordinate with the manufacturer for a free repair.
