Bloomington, MN—The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Salsa Cycles, a subsidiary of Quality Bicycle Products, have voluntarily recalled about 6,500 Salsa handlebar stems over fall hazards the product poses. The recall was announced on January 4, 2011

The recall was initiated after discovering that the handle bar stems can crack or break, which poses a fall hazard to riders.

The CPSC reported, “This recall involves all CroMoto S.U.L. 25.4 and 26.0 threadless handlebar stems and all CroMoto S.U.L. 26.0 quill handlebar stems sold as individual aftermarket units after April 1, 2010. The handlebar stems are black and have the word ‘Salsa’ painted on the extension. The recalled handlebar stems have a hash mark on the inside of the stem bar clamp area.”

Consumers are advised to contact an authorized Salsa Bicycles dealer for a free inspection and a handlebar stem replacement or a full refund.

For more information concerning the recall, consumers can contact Quality Bicycle Products toll-free at (877) 774-6208 between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. CT Monday through Friday or visit their website at www.salsacromotostem.com.
