KENT, WA (BRAIN)—REI is recalling about 5,200 Novara Afterburner Trailer Bicycles. The children’s trailer bicycle can detach from the adult bicycle, posing a fall hazard to children.
REI has received one report of a children’s trailer bicycle detaching from the adult bicycle. No injuries have been reported. The single-wheel children’s bicycle attaches to, and cannot be operated independently of, an adult bicycle.
The Chinese-made product was sold at REI stores nationwide from February 2007 through June 2007 for about $160. REI said consumers should immediately stop using the bicycle trailer, visit the nearest REI store or contact REI for a free replacement part, a full refund or credit.
