The consumer products Safety Commission announced a voluntary recall of about 6,400 Electra bicycles, 2009 model, because the product's front tray or basket can come loose and into contact with the front tire, posing a fall hazard to riders. The company received 15 reports of the front tray or basket coming loose, including two reports of minor cuts and bruises. The recalled products include 2009 Delivery 3i, Delivery 8D, Holiday 3i, Holiday 8i and Surf 3i bicycles with front-mounted trays or baskets. They were made in Taiwan and imported by Electra Bicycle Co., of Vista, Calif. They were sold by authorized Electra Bicycle dealers nationwide from October 2008 through August 2009. Details: by phone at 800-261-1644; on the Web at http://www.electrabike.com or http://www.cpsc.gov.

Consumers should stop riding the bicycles immediately and contact an Electra Bicycle dealer for a free inspection and repair of the trays or refund for trays and baskets purchased as aftermarket items.
