Boilers recalled due to carbon monoxide poisoning hazard

Check your furnace rooms. The Viessmann company has issued a boiler recall after they say the back plate on certain model Vitodens boilers can corrode and leak flue gases, allowing the boiler to emit excessive amounts of carbon monoxide and pose CO poisoning hazards to consumers.

The recall was announced on April 25 and involves the Vitodens 200-W and Vitodens 222-F series boilers used for space or domestic water heating. The company says no injuries or incidents have been reported related to the boiler recall at this time.

About 2,900 of the boilers were sold in the U.S. and an additional 1,400 were sold in Canada. The company says the product name and model number can be found on the left side of the boiler cover. The serial number can be found on the underside of the boiler.

The units were sold by Viessmann Authorized Dealers from September 2014 through October 2018 for between $2,700 and $4,200.
