    Crown Boilers Recalled

    December 19, 2006
    Crown Boiler Co. is recalling about 400 boilers, because they can generate excessive levels of carbon monoxide (CO) in the flue gases, posing a risk of CO poisoning.

    The recalled models are the Bermuda BSI and Cayman CWI Series Gas Boilers. Crown Boiler has received one report of high levels of carbon monoxide from these boilers. No injuries have been reported.

    The recall involves Bermuda BSI and Cayman CWI Series gas-fired boilers designed for indoor installation. Model and serial numbers included in this recall are listed below and are located on the rating plate. The boilers have a two-tone, red and gray jacket enclosure with the controls and piping on the right side of the unit. The rating plate is a silver label located in the upper left hand corner of the right side panel.

    The boilers were sold by plumbing and heating wholesale distributors to plumbers and contractors nationwide from October 2002 through October 2006 for between $800 and $2,100.

    Consumers who have not already been contacted by their contractor should immediately contact their installer or Crown Boiler Co. to arrange for a free repair. Consumers are reminded to install a CO alarm outside all sleeping areas, or make sure their current CO alarms have working batteries.

    For more information, contact Crown Boiler Co toll-free at (877) 597-3321 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or visit the firm's Web site at www.crownboiler.com
