CSA International and ECR International Announce Recall to Repair of Gas Boilers

May 13, 2002

In cooperation with CSA International, ECR International, of Utica, N.Y., is voluntarily recalling about 400 gas-fired boilers. The burners on these boilers could produce excess carbon monoxide (CO) in the flue, due to improper combustion, posing a risk of CO poisoning to consumers. CSA and ECR International have not received any reports of injuries or incidents relating to these boilers. This recall is being conducted to prevent the possibility of injuries. ECR International discovered the problem with these boilers during routine testing. The recalled boilers have the Dunkirk, Sears Kenmore, Bryant, Carrier, Payne, Lennox and Pennco brand names, which is written on the front of the boilers. The model and serial number are located on the data plate located on the right side of the boiler. The following models and serial numbers are included in the recall:
