Weehoo iGo Bicycle Pedal Trailers have been recalled due to fall and crash hazards. So far there have been about 2,700 units recalled and one incident report of the trailer’s receiver cracking while in use.
The trailer’s seat post hitch can crack and cause the trailer to detach, posing fall and crash hazards to the child in the seat. There have been no reports of injury. The recalled bicycle trailers include those manufactured between April 2011 and July 2011 and could be purchased at bicycle retail store nationwide.
How can you identify the affected products?
“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.”
Consumers should immediately stop using the iGo Bicycle Pedal Trailers and contact the Weehoo company for repairs. Repairs include a steel reinforcement sleeve installed over the receiver.
