Manufacturer recalls boilers for carbon monoxide hazard
By Jillian MorganHPAC General
Viessmann Manufacturing Company Inc. has recalled several boiler models after the units were reported to pose a risk of increased carbon monoxide levels.
The recall involves Vitodens 200-W (models B2HB 19, B2Hb 26 ad B2HB 35) and Vitdodens 222-F (models B2TB 19 and B2TB 35).
According to Health Canada, the back plate of the heat exchanger may corrode causing exhaust flue gases to potentially leak into living spaces.
Approximately 1,400 affected products were sold in Canada between September 2014 and September 2018.
As of April 23, 2019 the company has received no reports of incidents or injuries related to the use of these boilers in Canada.
Those with recalled boilers are advised to contact the installer, the wholesaler/distributor from whom they purchased the boiler or Viessmann Manufacturing in order to schedule a free boiler safety inspection. https://healthycanadians.gc.ca/recall-alert-rappel-avis/hc-sc/2019/69606r-eng.php
