In a press release, W.L. Gore and Associates, Inc, in cooperation with and in accordance with the standards and regulations of the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), announced a voluntary safety recall for their Ride-On Bicycle Brake Cables because the products could potentially fail and result in a fall hazard for consumers. The main fault concerns brake cables that may have been connected to Campagnolo style brake levers, resulting in the possibility that the brake cables could detach from the lever, causing brakes to not work properly. As of this moment, no injuries have been reported in relation to this recall of the brake cables. The products were available through bicycle specialty shops, sporting goods retailers, and various online retailers. Consumers affected by the recall are instructed to stop riding their bikes until they have contacted Gore and received a free replacement cable kit to effective remove the hazard.
As a Lancaster personal injury lawyer, I know that manufacturers implement many safety measures during the production process to ensure the safety and quality of their products, however, even under the most meticulous eye, mistakes can be made. Over the course of my career, I’ve seen this type of recall many times and know the devastating injuries that can result from the use of a defective product. If you’ve suffered an injury through the normal use of a defective or poorly designed product, contact a personal injury lawyer in your city to discuss the legal options that could possibly be at your disposal.Tweet
