WASHINTON, DC (KAIT) - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Quality Bicycle Products of Bloomington, MN have announced the voluntary recall of a carrier rack to a falling hazard.

According to CPSC, the rack's mounting bracket can crack or break causing it to fall onto the bicycle's front wheel posing a falling hazard to the rider. Quality Bicycle Products says it has received at least one report of a mounting bracket breaking while the rider was on the bicycle, resulting in minor cuts.

CPSC says the racks are Civia Loring bicycle racks, with black aluminum tubing and bamboo panels, that mount to the bicycle's front fork—the word "Civia" is printed on the rack's side panels.

The racks were sold at independent bicycle stores nationwide from December 2009 through February 2011 for about $175 and were manufactured in Tawian.

Users should remove this rack and immediately contact the place of purchase for a full refund or replacement. For information, call Quality Bicycle Products toll-free at (877) 311-7686 between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. CT Monday through Friday or visit their website at http://civiacycles.com/aftermarketloringfrontrackrecall/
