Triangle Tube/III Co., of West Deptford, N.J., is recalling about 63,000 Prestige Solo & Prestige Excellence condensing gas boilers.

Flue gas can escape from the gas boilers if the vent adapter is not securely reattached to the boiler after maintenance or repair, posing a carbon monoxide poisoning hazard.

The firm has received one report of a death from carbon monoxide poisoning associated with the recalled boilers in 2016 following a repair where the adapter was not reattached. The firm has also received two other reports of vent tube adapter separation from the recalled boilers.

This recall involves 22 models of the Prestige Solo & Prestige Excellence condensing gas boilers manufactured between November 2011 and October 2019, for residential and light commercial use.

These wall-hung condensing gas boilers are housed in a white metal box. The name “Prestige” is printed on the white front panel and on the outside of the cardboard packing box. You can identify whether you have an affected boiler using the firm’s “how to” document at www.triangletube.com.
