Child trailers designed to be hitched to bicycles are being recalled because a defect can cause one of the trailer’s wheels to fall off. The Consumer Product Safety Commission has said that the recall covered about 2,700 trailers made by Burley Design LLC of Eugene, Ore. The recall covers 2009 d’lite ST and Solo ST two-wheeled child trailers with serial numbers starting with D939 or D948. The serial number is located behind the seat on the lower left rear frame tube. The products have “d’lite ST” or “solo ST” on the cover.
The commission said a sleeve inside the axle assembly can loosen, causing one wheel to come off the trailer, risking injury to the child or bike rider. The commission said there have been no reports of incidents or injuries. The trailers were sold by bike and specialty outdoor retailers nationwide and on the Internet from November, 2008 through June, 2009 for between $550 and $600. They were manufactured in the Philippines. Consumers should stop using the trailers and contact Burley for a free repair kit or help in finding a retailer to assist with free repairs.
