Aug. 31, 2012—Meijer recalled the adult and youth bicycles that it sells, because the pedals can loosen or detach during normal use, which poses a fall hazard to the rider.
This recall involves two-wheel adult and youth Huffy, Iron Horse, Mongoose, Northwoods, Pacific, Razor and Schwinn bicycles that are 20 inches or higher. They were assembled on-site at Meijer stores by Serv-U-Success. A list of the affected models can be found here.
The recalled bicycles were sold at Meijer stores in Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan and Ohio from March 2012 through August 2012. Meijer received 29 reports of pedals that loosened or detached while the bicycle was in use. Sixteen reports involved minor injuries. Consumers should stop using the recalled bicycles and return them to any Meijer store for a full refund or a replacement bicycle of the same type and value. Consumers also will receive a $10 store coupon.
