Stile Products Recalls Tern Folding Bicycles Due to Fall Hazard

Bike-eclipse

Sometimes, even exercising can be dangerous. The CPSC has announced the recall of their Tern Folding Bicycles because apparently the frame can crack, risking a bike accident injury to the rider.

The bad bikes were sold by the California manufacturer at their Stile/Tern dealers nationwide from January 2012 to May 2013. And these are no bottom-end bikes – they retailed for between $1,800 to $3,000 each.

The company has received 2 reports of personal injuries involving scrapes and bruises.

If you happen to own one of these troubled two-wheelers, PLEASE don't ride it again. The CPSC advises you to immediately contact the manufacturer at 888-570-8376, or go to their website link provided here: http://www.cpsc.gov/en/Recalls/2013/Stile-Products-Recalls-Tern-Folding-Bicycles/

The CPSC notes these stats:

  • About 3 million people in the US are injured annually, and at least 20,000 are killed as a result of defective products
  • More than 220,000 children are injured annually from playing with defective toys.
  • Around 7% of all personal injury lawsuits involve product liability
