LOS ANGELES, CA (BRAIN)—Currie Technologies is recalling certain models of its Tricruiser, an electric-powered adult tricycle. The company said the rear axle may break causing the rear wheel to detach. The Tricruiser was marketed under the IZIP and eZip brands.
The recall involves about 2,100 units manufactured by Acetrikes Industrial Co. of China. They were sold at IBDs, e-bike shops and online at Walmart.com from March 2007 to March 2012 for $850 to $1,120.
Models affected include:
-Model 2007 IZIP Tricruiser # IZ-TRICR7-BL – Serial # ACB06L000001 to ACB07M999999
-Model 2008 IZIP Tricruiser # IZ-TRY8-BL – Serial # ACB08A000001 to ACB08J999999
-Model 2009/10 IZIP Tricruiser # IZ-TRY-RD – Serial # ACB09B000001 to ACB10G999999
-Model 2010 EZIP Tricruiser # EZ-TRY-SD – Serial # ACB10H000001 to ACB10H999999
The tricycles are battery powered, have 24-inch wheels and a basket between the rear wheels. They came in red, blue and sand.
Currie is asking dealers that have inventory on hand to stop selling the product and provide the company a list of names, addresses, phones and emails for consumers who have purchased the affected models. Currie will contact the consumers. Retailers are also encouraged to contact customers directly.
The company will provide retailers a replacement rear sub-assembly for each unit affected and reimburse dealers for the labor on installation.
