Filed under: Activities: Babies, Health & Safety: Babies, Toys

Dynacraft BSC Inc., of American Canyon, California, in cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commission, is voluntarily recalling their Triax PK7 and Vertical PK7 Bicycles. The frame of these bicycles may crack while being ridden, resulting in a loss of control. Children may be injured in a subsequent fall or collision. There have been two reports of bicycle frames cracking, resulting in minor injuries.

The recalled bicycles are the Triax PK7 (model 8509-24) and Vertical PK7 (model 8596-71T) 20-inch aluminum cushion framed bicycles sold exclusively at Target stores. The Triax model was manufactured between October 2005 and May 2006, and the Vertical model was manufactured between August 2004 and December 2004. The model numbers and manufacture dates are printed on a label affixed to the bicycle frame. The bicycles were sold at Target from September 2004 through February 2007 for about $100.

Do not let your children ride these bikes; instead, return them to the nearest Target store for a full refund.
