A line of Mr. Coffee machines that tend to get too steamy are among a long list of recalled consumer products this week. Others include a range of bicycles and components including handlebars and brakes that pose a safety risk to riders, along with paint products, baby bathers, and battery packs.
Here's a more detailed look at this week's recalled products:
