Bike Basket Recalled by Pet Supply Company Due to Fall Hazard
A pet supply company is issuing a recall after reports that one of its products is defective.
Kurgo announced this week that it would be voluntarily recalling about 6,000 Skybox Bike Baskets due to the falling risk posed if the plastic clamp breaks and detaches from the bicycle handlebars. The company has received 10 reports of the plastic clamps breaking. No serious injuries have been reported.
The baskets have an aluminum frame with an orange and black exterior and a light blue fabric interior. The affected models bear the PO numbers 2068, 3176, and 3304. This number can be found stitched on the back of the tag inside the basket.
The Kurgo Skybox Bike Basket was sold at Petco, Pet Valu and other pet product retailers throughout the U.S. and Canada and online from September 2013 through August 2015 for about $55.
Consumers should immediately stop using this product.
Customers with questions about the recall can contact Kurgo customer service at (877) 847-3868.
