Approximately 34,000 units of child bike trailers sold by Burley Design LLC are being recalled in the U.S. after two children reportedly suffered injuries.
Reports said at least seven models of the child bicycle trailers made from 2009-2015 are equipped with black “tow bar receivers” made of plastic that may suddenly detach. When the problem occurs, the child inside the carriage is at high risk of suffering injuries. Two of the thirty-five incidents of detaching bike trailers resulted in minor injuries. Owners of the affected products are advised to refrain from using the bike trailers while waiting for the free repair kit provided by the recalling company.
Unfortunately, many families have to deal with costly medical treatment after their children suffer injuries in these types of accidents.
