If you bought your child a bicycle at Toys “R” Us recently,
you may want to check to see if it has been recalled. Dynacraft recently
announced the recall of more than 3,000 Avigo 20 Inch Turn N’ Burn
According to the
Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the front wheel on the bicycle can detach, posing a fall hazard.
Dynacraft has received one report of a child who fell and sustained scrapes
and abrasions when the front wheel came loose.
The defective bicycle were sold exclusively at Toys “R” Us
stores and online between September 2013 and June 2014 for $130. The model
number is 8107-62 and the date of manufacture is “08202013.”
Both are printed on a data label on the frame’s seat tube.
The recalled bikes are described as having a silver frame, blue handlebars
and black front fork with blue accents, hand brakes and a kickstand. The
serial number can be found etched on the frame on the underside of the
bottom bracket shell. Serial numbers included in the recall have letters
“DJFH” followed by a six-digit number between 026588 and 027104,
and between 089533 through 090562; or the letters “DJFI” followed
by a six-digit number between 015107 and 015552, and between 100093 and 101193.
If you have purchased a bike impacted by the recall, the CPSC advises to
immediately stop using it. You can then contact Dynacraft to arrange for
