About 6,700 Hardwall Fuel Curb Hose have been recalled by Franklin Fueling Systems Inc., of Madison, Wisc. The crimp on the fuel hose can loosen causing fuel to leak, posing a fire and explosion hazard. The FLEX-ING™ FLEX-ON hardwall curb hose is 1 inch in diameter ranging in lengths from 9 inches to 100 feet, including various made-to-order lengths, with fixed and swivel fittings. The product is used in conjunction with the gas station nozzle to dispense or transfer refined fuels such as gasoline, diesel, ethanol blends and biodiesel blends (up to E15). The recalled hoses come in black, green, blue, yellow or red. A date code of M1014 through M3014 in WWYY format, is on the fitting with model numbers starting with FLHFR3XX XXX or FLXHW3XX XXX. On the products with a fixed fitting, the model number is on a label on the crimp ferrule. On products with a swivel fitting, the model number can be found on the label of the box in which it was shipped. “FLEX-ING™ FLEX-ON” or “FLEXSTEEL FUTURA” are printed on the hoses.
They were sold to distributors, contractors and gasoline stations nationwide from March 2014 through July 2014 for between $20 and $560 depending on length. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled hardwall curb hose and contact the firm to receive a full refund or a replacement hose.
