Sante Fe Trading, Inc. Recalling BMX Sidewalk Bicycles

Houston, TX (SafetyAlerts) - Sante Fe Trading, Inc. is recalling its BMX sidewalk bicycles, item 121 and its BMX sidewalk bicycles, item 124, both imported from Taiwan. These bicycles are equipped with hand brakes and a freewheeling feature which permits the wheels to operate independently of the pedal motion. This presents a significant risk of injury to a young child who might not be able to stop the bicycle.

Since January, 1989 over 5,000 of these bikes have been distributed to customers located in South Texas, mostly in the Houston area. Although neither the Commission nor the firm is aware of an injury, the recall is being taken as a precautionary measure.

Consumers who have these bicycles should contact the retail store where they were purchased so that arrangements can be made to remove the handbrakes and freewheeling features of the bicycles at no cost to consumers.
