Bicycles recalls– USA

 We would like to draw your attention to the issue of bicycles which have recently been recalled in the United States.  

According to the recall alert the affected products pose a risk of injury to riders because the interior alignment tabs of the bicycle's chainguard can be pushed against the chain causing it to derail. Cases of the chainguard derailing the chain, including one of a fall, have been reported. 

Additional details on the products affected can be found on the CPSC website at: www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prhtml08/08365.html or on the websites of the  Electra Bicycle Company at : http://www.electrabike.com/.com

The company informed that the recall involves some Amsterdam model bicycles in the Classic 3, Original 3, Royal 8, and Sport 3 styles. The bicycles have an enclosed chainguard. "Electra" and "Amsterdam" are printed on the bicycle's frame and/or chainguard. Bicycles with frame numbers beginning with "EL" or bicycles with chainguards marked "06/08" are not included in this recall. The frame number is located on the underside of the bottom bracket. 

The recalled products had been sold in  the following European countries : Austria, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom.

Should your company retail, import or distribute the product in question, you are requested to advise the GRTU without undue delays, so as to take the necessary actions as soon as possible.

If you are aware of any person or company who is retailing, importing or distributing this product, please also advise the undersigned to enable the said person to be contacted.
