Wysco Recalls Runt Miniature Bicycles
Wysco Recalls Runt Miniature BicyclesIn cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Wysco, Inc. is voluntarily recalling 95,156 Runt bikes. The Runt failed to meet mandatory CPSC standards requiring a chainguard and coaster brake.

The miniature bikes were sold by bike, toy, discount department, convenience, mail order and Internet stores from January 2001 through July 2001 for about $100. The affected bikes are those that do not have a chain guard or coaster brake. Only Runt brand bikes are involved in the recall and all have the Runt dog logo on the steerer tube. The bikes were sold in red, blue, black and chrome.

Wysco has not received any reports of injuries involving the Runt bike.

Consumers should stop using the bikes immediately. For information or to order a free repair kit, call toll-free (866) 868-7868 between 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. pacific time Monday through Friday, e-mail or visit
