This blog post concerns a recently recalled Prestige Solo & Prestige Excellence Condensing Gas Boiler products (distributed in the U.S. from November 2011 to July 2020) whose design can allow flue gas (containing dangerous levels carbon monoxide) to escape inside a structure in certain circumstances, build up to lethal levels, and cause severe consequences including death. One death has been reported due to the hazard that prompted the recall. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission discusses the recall on their site.
The manufacturer (Triangle Tube out of New Jersey) has the following company website link discussing the recall, including a way to identify the affected boilers, different press releases, the safety recall notice, and a product recall repair video.
