WASHINGTON (BRAIN) — Wiggle Ltd. is recalling about 280 Vitus 14 and Vitus 16 kids bikes that the U.K. e-commerce vendor sold in the U.S. The Consumer Product Safety Commission said the bikes don't meet U.S. regulations for kids sidewalk bikes because they have handbrakes but no coaster brake. 

The bikes were sold on and from January 2017 through April 2021 for about $280 for the VITUS 14 and about $300 for the VITUS 16.

Wiggle Ltd. is contacting all purchasers directly and is providing a free replacement wheel with a coaster brake.
