About 22,000 Ancheer E-bikes were recalled because the lithium-ion batteries can ignite, explode or spark.
The problem poses a fire hazard and a risk of burn injuries to consumers. There were 4 reports of people who were burned, as well as 6 reports of fires or explosions involving the e-bike batteries.
The recall involves Ancheer e-bikes with model number AM001907. The model number is printed on the e-bike packaging and in the instruction manual, but not on the bike itself.
A water bottle shaped cylindrical battery distinguishes model AM001907 from other models. The bikes are black and have 26-inch wheels an the name “Ancheer” is printed on the downtube.
They were sold online from January 2016 through June 2022 for between $280 and $930.
Ancheer is asking consumers to stop using the e-bikes and contact the company for a free replacement battery and battery mount.
