Yuba Bicycles is recalling approximately 1,000 Mundo cargo bikes. Passengers' feet can get caught in the rear wheel of the recalled bikes, posing a risk of foot injury.

The recalled bicycles are Mundo V4 cargo bikes. The 26-inch bicycles have steel frames, aluminum fenders on the front and rear wheels, and a wood utility deck mounted on the rear cargo rack. The bikes come in orange, black or blue.

The word 'Mundo' is on the top tube of the bicycle frame and 'Yuba' is on the down tube. The serial number range for the recalled bikes is ADA11A008000 to ACA12D018000. The serial number is located on the kickstand plate.

The recalled bicycles were sold at bicycle dealers nationwide and by Yuba Bicycles online from May 2011 through December 2012.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled cargo bikes and contact Yuba Bicycles to receive free wheel covers/wheelskirts and have them installed at no cost.
