Philadelphia, PA — The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Advanced Sports Inc. have voluntarily recalled about 10,500 Fuji Saratoga Women’s Bicycles for fall hazards the defective bicycles pose to consumers. The CPSC announced the recall on February 21, 2012.
The bicycle recall was issued after discovering that the bicycle’s frame can break in the center of the downtube during use, which can cause the rider to lose control and fall.
“The recalled bicycles are Fuji women’s cruiser bicycles. The 2008 through 2010 models Saratoga 1.0, Saratoga 2.0, Saratoga 3.0 and Saratoga 4.0 are included. The bicycles are various colors. ‘Fuji’ and ‘Saratoga’ alone or ‘Saratoga’ along with the model number is printed on the frame of the bicycle. Serial numbers beginning with ICFJ7, ICFJ8, ICFJ9, ICFJ10 and ICFJ11 are included in this recall. The serial number is located on the bottom of the frame near the crank,” reported the CPSC.
Consumers are advised to return the bicycles to any authorized Fuji Bicycle dealers for a free replacement frame.
For more information concerning the product recall, consumers can contact Advanced Sports Inc. toll-free at (888) 286-6263 between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or visit www.fujibikes.com.
