Boilers that could explode, bikes make recalls list

(WPRI) – Boilers that could explode, popular bikes, and nail guns have made this week’s recalls list.

Thousands of Weil-Mclain boilers are being recalled because a cap on the boiler’s manifold can crack and release gas into the house, posing a risk of fire and explosion. The recall involved Ultra models, which are gas fired boilers used for space heating.

The company received 11 reports of manifold caps cracking, but so far no fires or injuries have been reported. Consumers should stop using the recalled boilers, turn off the gas supply to the boilers, and contact Wil-Mclain to schedule a free inspection and repair.

Scott is recalling Speedster bicycles because the steer tube in the front fork can break and pose a falling hazard. The Speedster 30, Speedster 40, and Contessa Speedster 25 and 35 road bicycles are included in this recall.

Consumers should stop riding the bicycle and take it to an authorized Scott dealer for a free replacement part and have it installed at no cost.

Hitachi Koki is recalling thousands of pneumatic nailers due to injury hazards. The nailers can jam and override the safety switch that permits only one nail to fire at a time.

Consumers should stop using the product and contact the company for instructions on how to return the nailer for a free repair.
