A crash hazard has prompted the recall of about 34-thousand child bicycle trailers, which allow cyclists to tow children behind their bikes while riding.
The recall involves seven models of Burley Design child bicycle trailers manufactured from 2009 to 2015.
On these trailers, the black plastic tow bar receivers can separate from the tow bar when they appear to be connected, posing a crash hazard to the child in the trailer.
Burley Design has received 35 reports of such incidents, including two that resulted in abrasions to a child.
Consumers should stop using the trailers and contact Burley Design for a free safety strap kit with tools.
Burley Design can be reached at 800-311-5294 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. PT Monday through Friday or online at www.burley.com and click on “Recall Information” for more information.
