Gas boilers recalled

The U.S. manufacturer of a specific type of gas boiler recalled about 1,200 units Wednesday because of a risk of carbon monoxide poisoning.

Pennsylvania-based PB Heat LLC recalled its DE and PSC II Gas Fired Cast Iron Boilers with the Endura Plastics Model ES2035 pressure switch used for home heating and domestic hot water heating.

The company says the pressure switch may have a defect that could fail to shut down the boilers in the event of a vent or air inlet blockage, allowing the boilers to produce excessive levels of carbon monoxide.

The following model names and serial numbers are included in the recall:

Model name DE-03, DE-04, DE-05 and DE-06 with the serial numbers 5040768 to 5052860.

Model name PSCII-03, PSCII-04, PSCII-05, and PSCII-06 with the serial number 5040777 to 5052166.

The boilers were sold at plumbing and heating wholesale distributors across the United States from May 2007 through July 2008 for between $1,800 US and $3,000 US.

Consumers who have not already been contacted should contact their installer immediately for a free safety inspection and repair, if necessary.
