IKEA recalls nearly 5,000 bikes

The Journal Gazette

IKEA is recalling about 4,900 26-inch and 28-inch SLADDA bicycles, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said this week.

The recalled bicycles are a light grey and have an aluminum frame. IKEA is printed at the bottom of the seat tube near the crank. The article aumber is printed on a sticker at the bottom of the down tube.

The bicycle belt can break, posing a fall hazard. Customers should immediately stop using the recalled bicycles and return them to any IKEA store for a full refund.

About 4,900 bikes were sold in the U.S. and about 200 in Canada. There have been no incidents or injuries.

The bicycles were sold exclusively at IKEA stores nationwide and online at www.ikea-usa.com from August 2016 through January 2018 for between $400 and $500.
