WASHINGTON, D.C. (BRAIN) Jan 25, 10:07 MT—Three importers are working with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada to recall about 2,000 Nitto aluminum handlebars that can break.
The B259AA bars were sold from January 2008 through July 2011 for between $60 and $80. Two incidents in which the bars broke have been reported. One of the incidents involved a fall and a cut to the rider's leg.
The bars were imported and distributed to dealers by Euro Asia Imports, The Merry Sales Co., and Bicycle Technologies International.
They were sold in the following colors: red, blue, black, gold, green, pink and silver. “NITTO” and “B259” are printed at the end of the handlebars.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled handlebars and contact Euro Asia Imports to receive free replacement handlebars.
