Electric bikes have gained popularity in recent years in Oklahoma and other states. They are affordable and can be an easy way to get around for those who don’t have access to a car, especially in urban areas. But the use of electric bicycles, like other electric products, does have some safety concerns. One brand of e-bikes was recently recalled due to the risk of injury associated with fires or explosions. 

Details of the recall 

The recalled e-bikes are made by the Ancheer brand. The bikes were sold by many different online retailers. The recall is related to the lithium-ion battery, which can ignite, explode or cause sparks that can cause injuries and damage to property. Several consumers have already reported minor injuries related to the problematic batteries.  

The model number of the recalled bikes is AM001907. Consumers who own an Ancheer e-bike can find the model number on the bike packaging or in the manual that comes with the bike. Those who have a recalled bike are encouraged to stop using the bike immediately. The company is offering a free replacement battery and battery mount to those affected by the recall.   

Dangers of defective products

Defective products can cause significant harm to consumers. This may include serious injuries that can leave the consumer with unexpected medical costs and loss of work. Anyone in Oklahoma who has been injured in such a manner may be entitled to seek compensation from the manufacturer through a product liability suit. An experienced attorney can provide insight on how to proceed forward with a case.
