A.O. Smith Water Products Co. has recalled gas water heaters because of possible fire and carbon monoxide hazards. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said consumers should stop using the water heaters immediately. No incidents or injuries have been reported. The recall affects about 1,500 units of 75-gallon natural and propane gas water heaters sold by independent contractors and plumbers nationwide from November 2007 through January 2008. The commission said the water heater’s flue gas temperatures can exceed safe limits and produce excessive temperatures in the venting unit, posing a fire hazard. The exhaust can leak into the surrounding room. Consumers can get details from A.O. Smith at 1-866-880-4661 or www.hotwater.com. A.O. Smith bought Ashland City-based State Industries in 2001.
