Just in time for a winter that's freezing out most of the United States: A home heating boiler recall with a defect that could kill you: A carbon monoxide hazard.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission just announced it's recalling gas fired hot water boilers made by New Yorker Boiler. The heating devices were sold at plumbing and heating wholesale distributors across the country from July 2012 through February 2013 for between $1,600 and $3,200.

The reason for the recall? The CPSC says:

The air pressure switch can fail to shut down the burners when there is a blockage in the vent system, allowing the boiler to emit excessive amounts of carbon monoxide and posing a CO poisoning hazard to the consumer.

For more information about the models of boilers being recalled, pictures and information on what you should do, go to the CPSC recall page.
