Injuries Prompt Recall of Tire Inflator Hand Pumps

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Innovations In Cycling Inc., doing business as Genuine Innovations, announced a voluntary recall of the Combination Tire Inflator and Hand Pumps. Consumers are advised to stop using the recalled products immediately due to the fact that the product can shatter under pressure when inflating tires if there is a blockage in the tire valve, posing the risk of bruises, lacerations, and ringing in the ears to consumers.

Genuine Innovations has received 12 reports of their product exploding. Six injuries were reported, including lacerations, temporary ringing in ear, and bruising.

This recall involves the Genuine Innovations Second Wind MTB model with part numbers 2525, 2525-O, and 3519, and the Wrench Force Two Shot model with part numbers 84995 and 80383. These devices consist of a hand pump and CO2 cartridge inflator. The part number can only be found on the packaging.

Manufactured in United States and Taiwan, approximately 55,000 units were sold through nationwide specialty retail stores, bicycle and motorcycle/ATV catalogues, and online stores. The Genuine Innovations Second Wind MTB and the Wrench Force Two Shot were sold from January 2004 through May 2007 for about $30. The Second Wind MTB was sold as part of the Genuine Innovations ATV Deluxe Tire Repair & Inflation Kit from July 2005 to January 2007 for about $50.

Consumers should contact Innovations In Cycling at 800-340-1050 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. MT, Monday through Thursday, or visit www.genuineinnovations.com.
