SUMNER, WA (BRAIN)-REI is recalling about 5,200 Novara Afterburner Trailer bicycles.
The outdoor retailer chain said 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 item 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.
