In some carbon monoxide poisoning cases, The Consumer Product Safety Commission or The National Highway Safety Administration has required the manufacturer to recall the defective product. Below are just a few carbon monoxide related recalls:
Kubota Off-Road Vehicles -- On October 2, 2012, Kubota and The Consumer Product Safety Commission recalled the Kubota RTV500 4 x 4 vehicle with cab because carbon monoxide can accumulate in the vehicle's cab when the engine is idling and the vehicle is not moving.
Maple Chase Carbon Monoxide Detectors -- Maple Chase Company and The Consumer Product Safety Commission recalled the FireX Branded 10000 Series Carbon Monoxide Alarms and the 12000 Series Carbon Monoxide/Smoke Combo Alarm because, in the presence of carbon monoxide, the alarms can sound a "double chirp" alarm before ultimately sounding the full alarm. Yet, the owner's manual instructs consumers to take the alarm out of service upon hearing a double chirp alarm, which could leave the consumer exposed to dangerous levels of carbon monoxide.
Effikal, LLC Gas Vent Dampers -- Effikal, LLC and The Consumer Product Safety Commission recalled roughly 45,000 gas vent dampers for gas boiler systems. The automatic gas vent damper can fail allowing it to leak carbon monoxide if the blocked vent switch does not activate.
Kiddie Safety Carbon Monoxide Detectors -- Kiddie Safety and The Consumer Product Safety Commission recalled roughly 650,000 Nighthawk alarms and 350,000 Lifesavers alarms. The Lifesaver alarm could alarm late or not at all and the Nighthawk alarm could alarm late. Under either circumstance, homeowners could be exposed to hazardous levels of carbon monoxide.
Fleetwood Enterprises, Inc Motor Homes -- Fleetwood Enterprises, Inc. and The National Highway Safety Administration issued a recall for certain motor homes in which the generator exhaust can accumulate beneath the slide out portion of the motor home and then seep into the interior of the vehicle. Passengers inside the vehicle are at risk for carbon monoxide poisoning.
