CPSC, Riteway Products Announce Recall of Bicycle Trailers WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Riteway Products of Santa Ana, Calif., recalled about 5,500 Cycle Design Tag-A-Long bicycle trailers to replace their U-Joints and accompanying hardware. The U-Joint can break causing the trailing rider to be separated from the towing bicycle, lose control, fall and be injured. CPSC and Riteway Products have received six reports of the U-Joint bolt hardware failing. Two minor injuries, such as cuts, scrapes and bruises, have been reported. The Cycle Design Tag-A-Long Trailer comes in three colors: blue, black or green. All of the trailers have the Tag-A-Long logo on the main tube of the trailer, as well as on the chain guard. The words "Cycle Design" are on the main tube of the trailer. Authorized Riteway Dealers nationwide sold the trailers from July 1997 through November 1997 for about $179. Consumers should stop using the trailer immediately and call their local bicycle dealer to see if they can replace the U-Joint and accompanying hardware. The firm (Riteway) is out of business and cannot be contacted. If the repair cannot be done, the product should be destroyed or discarded. [Source]
