Bloomington, MN — Fall hazards have prompted Quality Bicycle Products and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) to voluntarily recall carrier racks for mounting over the front bicycle wheel. The CPSC announced the product recall on June 8, 2011.

The product recall was issued after discovering that the bicycle rack’s mounting bracket can crack or break, which can cause the rack to fall onto the bicycle’s front wheel, posing a fall hazard to the consumer.

“This recall involves Civia Loring bicycle racks. They have black aluminum tubing with bamboo panels and mount to the bicycle’s front fork. The word ‘Civia’ is printed on the rack’s side panels,” reported the CPSC.

Consumers are advised to contact the place of purchase to receive a full refund or replacement.

For more information concerning the product recall, consumers can contact Quality Bicycle Products toll-free at (877) 311-7686 between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. CT Monday through Friday or visit their website at http://civiacycles.com/aftermarketloringfrontrackrecall/.
