Health Canada has recalled Chariot bicycle trailers and conversion kits with serial numbers from 1205-xxxx to 0710-xxxx (found on the left side on the frame). The hitch mechanisms can crack and break, causing the trailer to detach from the bicycle which in turn would pose an injury hazard to children.
Although Chariot has has received two reports of incidents in Canada, no injuries have been reported.
Customers are advised to stop using the recalled trailers and conversion kits and contact Chariot Carriers for a free repair kit and instructions.
Customers can receive a repair kit by contacting Chariot at 1-800-262-8651 between 10 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or visit the company's website.
From December 2005 through August 2010, approximately 41,000 of the recalled bicycle trailers, and from October 2002 through August 2011, 64,000 of the conversion kits were sold in Canada.
