Hazard identified: Flue gas can escape from the gas boilers if the vent adapter is not securely reattached to the boiler after maintenance or repair, posing a carbon monoxide poisoning hazard to consumers.

As of July 28, 2020, the company has received no reports of incidents or injuries in Canada.  In the United States, the company has received one report of a death from carbon monoxide poisoning associated with the recalled boilers in 2016 following a repair where the adapter was not reattached. The firm has also received two other reports of vent tube adapter separation from the recalled boilers

What you should do

Consumers should immediately contact Triangle Tube to schedule a free repair.

  • Consumers who continue using the boilers while awaiting repair should have working carbon monoxide alarms on each level of their homes and outside sleeping areas.
