Gas Boilers Recalled for Carbon Monoxide Dangers

May 7, 2008 | Parker Waichman LLP

The U.S. Consumer Produces Safety Commission (CPSC) has issued two recalls for defective gas boilers due to carbon monoxide hazards.  Although no incidents or injuries have been reported, if there is a leak in the vent piping, the recalled boilers can leak carbon monoxide (CO) into the buildings in which they are installed, posing a risk of CO poisoning.  Both recalls involve cast iron, gas-fired boilers, manufactured in the United States and used for space heating.

In the first recall, Weil-McLain of Michigan City, Indiana—in collaboration with the CPSC—is voluntarily recalling about 1,800 Williamson-Thermoflo GWS and GWI Gas Boilers.  Williamson-Thermoflo GWS and GWI Gas Boilers recalled with the following model names and serial numbers:  Model Names: GWS-127 and GWS-158; Serial Numbers: From CP 5160092 through CP 5663040 and Model Name: GWI-063, GWI-095, GWI-127, and GWI-158; Serial Numbers: From CP 4363986 through CP 5699844.  The model name and serial number can be found on separate labels on the outside of the left panel of Williamson-Thermoflo GWS and GWI Gas Boilers.

Williamson-Thermoflo GWS and GWI Gas Boilers were sold by plumbing and heating wholesale distributors to plumbers and contractors nationwide from October 2001 through December 2007 and retailed for between $1,500 and $2,700.

Consumers who have not already been contacted by Williamson-Thermoflo should contact their installer for a free safety inspection and repair, if necessary.  For additional information, contact Williamson-Thermoflo toll-free at (866) 783-9516 between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. CT Monday through Friday or visit the firm’s Web site at www.williamson-thermoflo.com

The second recall was also voluntary and conducted in collaboration with the CPSC and Weil-McLain.  Approximately 32,000 Weil-McLain CGs and CGi Gas Boilers, manufactured by Weil-McLain, of Michigan City, Indiana are being recalled.  The following model names and serial numbers are included in the recall:  Model Names: CGs-3, CGs-4, CGs-5, and CGs-6; Serial Numbers: From CP 5071501 through CP 5694976 and Model Names: CGi-3, CGi-5, and CGi-6 Series 2; Serial Numbers: From CP 4134351 through CP 5698635.  The model name and serial can be found on separate labels on the outside of the left panel of the Weil-McLain CGs and CGi Gas Boilers.

The Weil-McLain CGs and CGi Gas Boilers were sold by plumbing and heating wholesale distributors to plumbers and contractors nationwide from October 2001 through December 2007.  The Weil-McLain CGs and CGi Gas Boilers retailed for between $1,700 and $2,700.

Consumers who have not already been contacted, should contact their installer for a free safety inspection and repair, if necessary.  For more information, contact Weil-McLain toll-free at (866) 783-9276 between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, or visit the firm’s Web site at www.weil-mclain.com.
