In cooperation with CSA International, Weil-McLain of Michigan City, Indiana is voluntarily recalling approximately 3,200 CGs and CGi Gas Boilers in Canada.

The boilers are being recalled to conduct an inspection to ensure correct construction and repair if necessary. Additionally, if there is a leak in the vent piping, the recalled boilers may leak carbon monoxide (CO) into the buildings in which they are installed, posing a risk of CO poisoning. Consumers should stop using the boilers immediately unless otherwise instructed.

There have been no reports of incident or injuries…

The recall involves Weil-McLain cast iron, gas-fired boilers used for space heating. The following model numbers and serial numbers are included in the recall.

Model Number
Serial Number

CGs-3, CGs-4, CGs-5, CGs-6 From CP 5071501 through CP 5694976
CGi-3, CGi-5, CGi-6 Series 2 From CP 4134351 through CP 5698635

The boilers were sold by plumbing and heating wholesale distributors to plumbing and heating contractors nationwide from October 2001 through December 2007.

Consumers who have not already been contacted, should contact their installer for a free safety inspection and repair, if necessary. For more information, contact Weil-McLain toll-free at (866) 783-9276 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, or visit the Weil-McLain website at www.weil-mclain.com.

CPSC Recall Announcement: Weil-McLain Recalls Ultra Series Boilers for Carbon Monoxide Hazard
October 31, 2006 – The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Weil-McLain, today announced a voluntary recall of Weil-McLain gas boilers due to the risk of carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning.

Name of Product: Weil-McLain Ultra Series Gas Boilers
Units: About 16,000
Manufacturer: Weil-McLain, of Michigan City, Ind.
Hazard: These Weil-McLain boilers were manufactured for use with natural gas, but could have a blue tag incorrectly indicating to installers that they are intended for use with LP (propane) gas. If an installer connects one of the boilers to LP gas without installing a propane conversion kit, carbon monoxide (CO) can build up due to incomplete combustion, posing a risk of CO poisoning.
Incidents/Injuries: Weil-McLain is aware of one incident where two consumers reported CO poisoning when the boiler installed in their home was connected to LP gas.
Description: The recall involves Weil-McLain Ultra 80, Ultra 105, Ultra 155, Ultra 230 and Ultra 310 condensing, high-efficient, gas-fired boilers for space heating. The user’s manual and installation manual have “Ultra Gas-Fired Water Boiler” on the cover. The boilers are wrapped in a glossy silver/flat black jacket and either stand on the floor or are wall-mounted. The serial numbers range from CP5071716 through CP5327000. When the panel on the front of the boiler is removed, a bar-coded label with the serial number is located on the lower right hand side of the boiler itself. “Weil-McLain” is written on the front panel of the boilers.
Sold by: Plumbing and heating wholesale distributors to plumbers and contractors nationwide from May 2005 through July 2006 for between $4,000 and $7,000.
Manufactured in: United States
Remedy: Consumers who had a Weil-McLain Ultra series boiler installed for use with propane and have not already been contacted by their installer should contact the installer or a heating professional for a free safety inspection. If the boiler was not installed with a propane conversion kit, one will be installed at the time of the inspection at no charge. Note from Pritzker | Ruohonen: If you have been sickened by a Weil-McLain gas boiler, you should contact a lawyer immediately.]

This is the unit I believe from CPSC.
