Bosch, Siemens recall 170,000 potentially explosive gas ovens

German household products manufacturers Bosch and Siemens are starting a recall of 170,000 gas ovens that pose the risk of exploding, the licensee of the two brands, BSH housewares group, announced Tuesday in Munich.

The affected ovens were produced from January 2009 to October 2011, and were sold primarily in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany.

According to the announcement, the ovens could be subject to an uncontrolled gas leak which could in the worst case lead to an explosion.

BSH in 2013 and 2014 had issued a similar recall action on dishwashers and clothes driers.
