Health Canada has announced the recall of 88 children's bicycle trailers because they may break unexpectedly, posing an injury risk to the rider and the passenger.
The recall involves two models of child bicycle trailers manufactured by Burley: the 2009 D'lite ST and 2009 Solo ST.
The affected trailers are listed below:
- The D'lite ST, in Denim and Sun colours. It is identified by UPC number 948201 840840004734 and the first four digits of its serial number are D948.
- The D'lite ST, in Red and Tan colours. It is identified by UPC number 948203 840840004765 and the first four digits of its serial number are D948.
- The Solo ST in Denim and Sun colours. It is identified by UPC number 939201 840840004789 and the first four digits of its serial number are D939.
- The Solo ST in Red and Tan colours. It is identified by UPC number 939203 840840004802 and the first four digits of its serial number are D939.
The wheel of the trailer can get separated from the axle, causing the trailer to drop to the ground on one side, says Health Canada.
The trailers were sold nationwide between January 2009 and June 2009.
There has been one report of a bicycle wheel detaching in Germany, although no injuries have been reported.
Consumers are advised to stop using the trailer and contact Burley to receive a free axle replacement kit or to locate a retailer to assist with a free repair.
