10 bike-related recalls to check out before you hit the road

Now that spring is here, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is reminding consumers to check to see if their bicycles, bicycle components or accessories have been recalled before using them.

Recalled bicycles, components and accessories can be dangerous and cause an accident, resulting in injury or even death. If you have a recalled product, contact the business for the remedy. Once that's taken care of, remember to properly strap on your bike helmet!

You can find out more about these recalls and others at the CPSC website www.cpsc.gov.

The (CPSC) is still interested in receiving incident or injury reports that are either directly related to this product recall or involve a different hazard with the same product. Please tell them about your experience with the product on SaferProducts.gov.

Under federal law, it is illegal to attempt to sell or resell this or any other recalled product.
