Marin Mountain Bikes is recalling a line of children's bicycles due to a handlebar defect.

The handlebars of the Marin MBX 50 and Tiny Trails bicycles can loosen or separate during use, causing the rider to lose control and crash.

No injuries or incidents have been reported.

The recall affects about 450 Martin 2014 model MBX 50 and Tiny Trails children's bicycles in the U.S. and Canada. The boys' bicycles were sold in red and have serial number HA14980XXXXXX. The girls' bicycles were sold in purple and have serial number HA14982XXXXXX. Serial numbers are printed on a foil label affixed to the underside of the base of the down tube.

They were sold at bike stores nationwide from September 2013 through December 2014 for about $250.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled bicycle and contact Marin for a replacement handlebar stem.
