RECALL: Magic Chef air fryers, Ancheer e-bikes pose fire, burn hazards

Thousands of Magic Chef air fryers and Ancheer electric bicycles are under recall, both because they pose fire and burn hazards, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced Thursday.

The 11,750 Magic Chef Air Fryer Digital Air Fryer oven under recall can overheat, which poses fire and burn risks. The recall involves model numbers MCAF56DB (black) and MCAF56DW (white). They measure about 13 inches by 15 inches by 14 inches.

Consumers should immediately stop using the air fryers and provide a picture of the rating label on the bottom to the firm to receive instructions on how to disable the air fryer and receive a refund in the form of a credit. The credit will be $50 or the amount on the purchase receipt, if higher.

No receipt is needed to get the $50 credit.

The air fryers were sold from July 2018 through September 2020 for between $115 and $138.

Ancheer e-bike recall

About 22,000 Ancheer e-bikes are under recall because the lithium-ion batteries “can ignite, explode or spark.”

There have been six reports of incidents.

The recall is for model number AM001907, which is on the e-bike packaging and instruction manual but not on the bike, which is distinguishable by its water bottle shaped cylindrical battery. The bikes are black and have 26-inch wheels with “Ancheer” printed on the downtube.

Consumers should stop using the recalled e-bikes and contact Ancheer for a free replacement battery and battery mount.

The recalled e-bikes were sold between January 2016 and June 2022 for between $280 and $930.
