New York, NY — The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Huffy are voluntarily recalling 2012 Huffy® 20-Inch Slider Tricycles for loss of control hazards the tricycle poses to consumers. The CPSC announced the nationwide product recall on April 17, 2013.

The slider tricycles were recalled after discovering that the handlebar can unexpectedly loosen while in use, causing the rider to lose control. This poses a crash and fall hazard to consumers.

“The recalled product is 2012 model year 20-inch, three-wheeled Slider. The tricycle has a white frame with a black seat and black handlebars. “Huffy” is printed on the front of the frame; “Slider” is printed on the frame’s side. The model number, 98682, is located on the frame under the seat,” the CPSC reported.

Consumers are advised to contact Huffy for instructions on how to obtain a refund.

The tricycles were sold at Toys R Us stores nationwide.

Consumers are advised to contact Huffy toll-free at (888) 366-3828 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or online at www.huffybikes.com and click on “Product Recall” on the bottom of the page.
