After May 1, 2009, the remedy consumers receive will change. The recall originally included about 250,000 Plexvent and Ultravent HTPV pipe systems attached to gas or propane mid-efficiency furnaces and boilers in homes. The HTPV pipes can crack or separate at the joints and leak deadly carbon monoxide (CO) gas.
