Big box retailer, Meijer, and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission today announced the recall of some 68,000 bicycles sold between March and August throughout the midwest. The recall arises from what seems to be poor assembly of the bicycles' pedals on-site at Meijer stores by an outside company, Serv-U-Success. Meijer has received "29 reports of pedals detaching or coming loose during use," with 16 reports of injuries, according to the Commission. The recall applies to various models of Huffy, Iron Horse, Mongoose, Northwoods, Pacific, Razor and Schwinn bicycles. Click here to view all of the models affected.
Owners of the bikes should stop using them immediately and return them to a Meijer store for a replacement bike or full refund.
