Date:
June 23, 2009
Category:

The Danger:
The recalled skateboard wheel's core can shear and blow-out causing the wheel to separate from the skateboard truck's axle and bearings. This poses a risk of serious injury to riders.

The words "orangatang," "In Heat," and the size and durometer are written on the sidewall of the wheel. The wheels were sold in sets of four.
Sold At:
Authorized Loaded Boards/Orangatang Wheels dealers nationwide from March 2009 through April 2009 for about $55 per set.
What To Do:
