Fire safety: More product recalls 2

1. Espresso Makers: Atico International USA, Inc. has voluntarily recalled about 54,000 Espresso Makers because its heating instrument can forcefully separate from its base during the brewing cycle. This poses a burn injury hazard to consumers.
2. Costumes: Family Dollar Inc. has voluntarily recalled about 20,000 “Creepy Cape” Halloween Costumes because the capes fail to meet the standard for the flammability of vinyl plastic film. This poses a fire and burn hazard to consumers.
3. Boilers: Well-McLain has voluntarily recalled about 16,000 Gas Boilers. The boilers were intended for use with natural gas, but could have the incorrect tag on them. The incorrect tag would say that the boilers are intended for use with propane gas. If a consumer connects the boiler to propane gas without installing a conversion kit, carbon monoxide can build. This poses a risk of carbon monoxide poisoning.
4. Charcoal Grills: Cobb America Inc. has voluntarily recalled about 2,000 Cobb Premier Charcoal Grills. The grill emits carbon monoxide gas, which can poison consumers if used in doors. The promotional materials accompanying the grills created the impression that they could be used indoors. This creates consumer confusion and poses a risk of carbon monoxide poisoning.
