Genuine Innovations' Inflators Recall

Published October 16, 2007

TUSCON, AZ (BRAIN)—Genuine Innovations has issued a voluntary recall on its Second Wind MTB and Wrench Force Two Shot inflators.

The combination tire inflator and hand pump 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.

The CPSC has received 12 reports of combination tire inflator and hand pumps exploding. Six injuries were reported including lacerations, temporary ringing in ear and bruising.

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.

Roughly 55,000 units are being recalled.
