Recall Issued for Trek Bicycles

Due to a fall hazard, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission along with Health Canada has recalled about 27,000 Trek 2012 FX and District Bicycles. The bolt that attaches the seat saddle clamp to the seat post is defective and can break, resulting in four reports of incidents to date. The bikes were manufactured in China; imported by Trek Bicycle Corporation of Waterloo, Wisconsin; and sold nationwide at specialty bike shops. Bicycles that are being recalled include Model Year 2012 for Trek 7.2 FX, 7.3 FX, 7.4 FX, and 7.5 FX in District, 9th District, WSD, Livestrong, and Disc models.
