Navien Recalls Tankless Water Heaters Due to Risk of Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

Published on Dec 29, 2011 at 3:07 pm in Consumer Awareness.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced a recall of about 13,000 water heaters due to an increased risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. Imported by Navien America Inc., the agency said the heaters’ “vent collar may separate or detach if pressure is applied,” which could result in the release of carbon monoxide. There have been no injuries reported. Regardless of the type of water heater that is used, every home should have a CO alarm outside all sleeping areas and consumers should ensure that their CO alarms have working batteries. https://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prhtml12/12074/
