WASHINGTON - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Crown Boiler Co., Philadelphia, announced a voluntary recall of approximately 400 Bermuda BSI and Cayman CWI Series gas boilers. The boilers can generate excessive levels of carbon monoxide (CO) in the flue gases, posing a risk of CO poisoning.

The recalled boilers are designed for indoor installation. 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.

Model and serial numbers included in this recall, located on the rating plate, are: BSI069SN, BSI069EN, BSI172SL, BSI172EL, CWI069SN, CWI069EN, CWI172SL, and CWI172EL.

The units, manufactured in the United States, 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.

Crown Boiler has received only one report of high levels of CO from these boilers, and no injuries have been reported. Consumers are advised to stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.
