Burley Design Recalls Child Bicycle Trailers Due to Injury Risk

The product liability lawyers at KP LAW are experts in personal injury and pursuing compensation on behalf of children injured or killed by defective products. We advise consumers of voluntary product recalls involving products marketed specifically for children.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), trailers with black plastic tow bar receivers can separate from the tow bar when they appear to be connected, posing a crash hazard to a child. Burley Design has received 35 reports of trailers with black plastic tow bar receivers separating from the tow bar, including two incidents that resulted in abrasions to a child.

This recall involves seven models of Burley Design child bicycle trailers manufactured from 2009 to 2015. The trailers allow cyclists to tow children behind their bicycles while riding. The trailers are connected to the bicycle by a tow bar, which attaches to the rear axle of the bicycle on one end and to a tow bar receiver on the trailer at the other end. The tow bar receiver is on the front left side of the trailer as it faces the rear wheel of the bicycle. Recalled trailers have a black plastic tow bar receiver with an integrated wheel guard. Recalled trailers can be identified by the first four characters of the serial numbers on the trailer. The serial number is on a sticker in the rear cargo area behind the seat of the trailer on the left inside frame bar. The following seven trailer models and serial numbers are being recalled:
