Naples, FL — Bridgeway International and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) have voluntarily recalled about 91,000 bicycles for fall hazards the defective product poses to consumers. The CPSC announced the nationwide product recall on September 22, 2011.
The product recall was enacted after noticing that the bicycle chain can break, which can cause the rider to lose control and fall.
Bridgeway has received nine reports of injuries as a result of the defective bicycles, which resulted in lacerations and contusions.
“This recall involves ‘NEXT’-branded men’s 26-inch hybrid bicycles. The bicycles are red or orange. ‘Power X’ and ‘Suspension’ are printed on the frame. Model numbers LBH2611M and LBH2611M2 are included in this recall. The model number is located on the frame between the pedals,” the CPSC reported.
Consumers are advised to contact Bridgeway International for a free repair.
