Federal authorities in the United States are recalling thousands of heating boilers used in homes after it was found that the heaters produce hazardous carbon monoxide, a report on FOX17 stated on Thursday, January 9.
The recall affects 26,000 heating boilers manufactured by U.S. Boiler and 191 units from New Yorker Boiler, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) reported. The recall was issued after incidents of excessive emission of carbon monoxide that may lead to potential carbon monoxide poisoning were reported. Fortunately, there have been no injuries yet reported involving the boilers.
Consumers who have the recalled boilers are advised to contact the manufacturers for a free home check and repair, and an alarm to detect carbon monoxide should be used by homeowners waiting for repair.
