RECALL: Boilers pose carbon monoxide hazard

(WXYZ) - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is recalling Crown Boiler Home Heating Boilers due to a carbon monoxide hazard.

about 2,200 units across the United States has been recalled because an air pressure switch can fail to shut down the burners in the event that there is a blockage in the vent system. That would allow the boiler to release excessive amounts of carbon monoxide that could poison the consumer.

Consumers with the recalled boilers are advised to contact the installer or distributor immediately to schedule a free in-home repair.

While awaiting a repair, consumers should have a working carbon monoxide alarm installed outside of sleeping areas.

Recalled boilers have model numbers that begin with CWS and were manufactured between May 1, 2005 and July 1, 2013. Recalled models have dates between 5/1/2005 and 7/1/2013 or one of the following two-letter codes:
