October 28, 2015: Burley Design Child Bicycle Trailers Recall Due to Crash Hazard

Child Bicycle Trailers Recall News

As of October 28, 2015, Burley Design’s Child Bicycle Trailers recall due to risk of crash and injury to the child within the trailer, reports the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). Due to a design flaw, the black plastic tow bar receivers may detach from the tow bar, even if the parts appear to be connected. If these parts are not firmly connected while the trailer is being pulled by a moving bicycle, the trailer may detach from the bicycle and crash.

So far, there have been 35 cases reported to Burley Design of this occurrence. Two of these cases resulted in the injury of a child.
