The black control drawer in the bottom center of the front of the boiler is marked “Buderus GB 142.” Boilers with a green sticker inside the control drawer are not included. The model numbers included in the recall are 142/24, 142/30, 142/45, and 142/60. Only models with date codes of 7246 through 7256 are included in this recall. The model number and date code are located on a label on the bottom left side of the boiler.

The recalled Gas-Fired Wall-Hung Boilers were sold by wholesale distributors to plumbing and heating contractors nationwide from September 2007 through December 2007 and sold for between $5,000 and $7,500.
