Meijer Recalling Bikes With Faulty Pedals
There's trouble out there with thousands of bikes sold at Meijer the spring and summer. They are recalling 68,000 bikes after 29 reports of pedals detaching or coming loose during use, resulting in 16 reports of minor injuries.
Anyone who bought one of these bikes should immediately stopped using the them.
The Meijer folks are asking the recalled bikes that include youth and adult Huffy, Iron Horse, Mongoose, Northwoods, Pacific, Razor and Schwinn that measure 20” or more, be returned for a full return or a replacement bicycle of the same type and value. You will also receive a $10 store coupon.
The bicycles were sold between March and August of this year. They have a Serv-U-Success assembly sticker located at the bottom of the bicycle frame between the pedals or on the back of the frame facing the rear tire. The recall does not include bicycles with Serv-U-Success assembly stickers written in green marker.
The bikes were priced at between $60-300, and were sold exclusively at 199 Meijer stores in Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, Indiana and Kentucky. Bicycles sold at Meijer stores in Cadillac, Gaylord, Petoskey and Traverse City are not included in this recall.
