Boilers recalled for carbon monoxide danger

About 16,000 Weil-McLain brand boilers are being recalled because they pose a carbon monoxide hazard, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced.

The natural gas boilers may have been improperly tagged for use with propane gas. If improperly installed without a propane conversion kit, carbon monoxide may accumulate, putting consumers at risk.

The company is aware of one incident in which two people suffered carbon monoxide poisoning due to improper installation.

The Weil-McLain Ultra 80, Ultra 105, Ultra 155, Ultra 230 and Ultra 310 are included in the recall. Serial numbers range from CP5071716 through CP5327000.

Consumers should contact a heating professional for a safety inspection.

The product was sold through plumbing and heating distributors from May 2005 through July 2006.
