NY Thermal of Canada is recalling about 23,000 Trinity Tft and Slant/Fin CHS residential and commercial boilers sold in the U.S. and Canada.
The grommet seal can reduce in size over time and dislodge during use and allow the boiler to emit carbon monoxide, posing a poisoning hazard.
The firm has received three reports of the grommet seal deteriorating or becoming dislodged and the boiler leaking condensation and carbon monoxide. No injuries have been reported.
This recall involves NY Thermal (NTI) manufactured gas boilers sold under the Trinity Tft and Slant/Fin CHS brand names used for residential and commercial use.
The Trinity Tft models have the name “NTI” printed on the front and were sold in metallic-grey. The Trinity Tft60 through Tft250 model boilers measure 33 inches tall by 20 inches wide. The Trinity Tft300 through Tft399 model boilers measure 36 inches tall and 25 inches wide.
The Slant/Fin CHS models have the name “Slant/Fin” and “CHS” printed across the front bottom and were sold in white. The Slant/Fin CHS-85 through CHS-250 model boilers measure 33 inches tall by 20 inches wide. The Slant/Fin CHS-300 through CHS-399 model boilers measure 36 inches tall and 25 inches wide.

The boilers, manufactured in Canada, were sold at NTI professional wholesalers, heating and plumbing contractors and home appliance wholesalers nationwide from October 2011, through January 2018, for between $5,000 and $14,000.
