Schwinn Bicycle Child Carriers Recalled

Date:
May 9, 2006
Category:
Sporting Goods
Company/Brand:
PTI Sports
The Danger:
If the seat is not fully seated on the rack, the plastic guide tabs on the carrier can break, which could cause the seat to fall off. This poses a risk of serious injury to a child seated in the carrier.
Description:
This recall involves about 14,000 bicycle child carriers. The carrier is a seat for a child attached to the back of an adult bicycle. The carrier is gray plastic with a blue rubber back and seat pad, a gray head rest, and black straps. Model number SW571T is printed on the carrier's packaging and in the owner's manual. "PTI" is printed on a yellow warning sticker on the back of the carrier seat.
Sold At:
Department stores, discount department stores, and military exchanges nationwide from September 2004 through November 2005 for about $50.
What To Do:
Stop using the bicycle child carriers immediately. Do not return the carrier to the store. Contact PTI Sports for a free safety bracket and revised installation instructions. For more information, contact PTI Sports at (800) 515-0074 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, e-mail customerservice@ptisports.com, or visit www.schwinnbike.com.
