Health Canada is recalling Orangatang "In-Heat" skateboard wheels because the core can shear and blow out, causing an injury risk for riders.
The wheels were sold in sets of four, in two styles: 75 millimetre purple 83a durometer, and 75 millimetre orange 80a durometer. Printed on the sidewall of the wheel are the following words: "Orangatang", "In Heat" and the wheel size.
Health Canada has not received any reports of incidents or injuries to Canadians related to the use of these recalled products.
Approximately 200 of the recalled wheel packages were sold in Canada, in March and April, 2009.
Consumers should stop using the wheels immediately and contact Loaded Boards Inc. or any authorized dealer for a free replacement.
