Washington, D.C.—Tech 4 Kids Inc., of Canada and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) have voluntarily recalled about 2,100 OUTER EDGE snow bikes for fall hazards. The CPSC announced the recall on February 8, 2011.
The product recall was initiated after discovering that the front ski can crack or break, which can cause the snow bike to stop suddenly. This poses a fall hazard to consumers.
“The recall includes OUTER EDGE brand Snow MX-Ski-Doo® and the Snow MX-X Games™ snow bikes. The Snow MX-Ski-Doo snow bike is yellow and black with ‘Ski-Doo’ printed on the steel frame and on the front ski. The Snow MX-X Games snow bike is blue and black with ‘Snow MX,’ a skull and swords printed on the steel frame and on the front ski. ‘OUTER EDGE’ is printed on the snow bikes’ packaging,” according to the CPSC press release.
The snow bikes were sold at Costco, sporting goods stores and other retailers nationwide, as well as online at Amazon.com and Walmart.com for about $150.
Consumers are advised to return the snow bikes to the place of purchase for a full refund.
For more information concerning the recall, consumers can contact Tech 4 Kids toll-free at (866) 287-4761 24 hours a day, seven days a week, or visit their website at www.outeredgeindustries.com/safetynotice/.
