CPSC Recall: Weehoo iGo Bicycle Pedal Trailers Pose Fall/Crash Hazards

Golden, CO — The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Weehoo Inc. have voluntarily recalled Weehoo iGo Bicycle Pedal Trailers for fall and crash hazards the defective product poses to consumers. The CPSC announced the nationwide product recall on September 13, 2011.

The recall was issued after discovering that the trailer’s seat post hitch can crack, causing the trailer to detach. This poses fall and crash hazards to the child in the seat.

“This recall involves 2011 Weehoo iGo bicycle trailers manufactured between April 2011 and July 2011. The trailer has a steel frame with an adjustable seat for passengers 38 to 52 inches tall, two pedals with straps, an enclosed sprocket and chain, a 20-inch wheel, two pannier pockets, a flagpole and a flag. The seat, pannier pockets, and flag are made of red, heavy-duty nylon. The pannier pockets and the flag have the word ‘Weehoo’ and the logo printed on them in reflective material. The serial numbers for the recalled trailers contain the letter ‘D’ and can be found on the underside of the iGo frame, by the pedals,” the CPSC reported.

Consumers are advised to contact Weeho for repairs to their Weehoo iGo Bicycle Pedal Trailers.

For more information concerning the product recall, consumers can contact Weehoo at (800) 538-6950 anytime, or visit www.weehoobicycletrailer.com.
