(Best Syndication News) - Todson, Inc. has voluntarily recalled around 40,000 of the Topeak Babyseat™ II Bicycle Carrier Seats because the child could cut and possibly amputate their fingertips. The company received two reports of children catching their fingers and suffered a near amputation and a crushed finger.
The problem is when a child places their finger in the opening by the grab bar’s hinge equipment. The adult could lift the grab bar and this could cause the child’s finger to become caught in the hinge, which could cause injury including fingertip amputation.
The carrier seats were sold at J&B Imports, REI, Action and Hawley, other independent bicycle dealers, and other retailers nationwide. They also were sold online at REI.com. The baby seat carrier were sold between January 2009 and April 2012 between $140 and $180.
Model number TCS2100, TCS2101 and TCS2102 of the Topeak Babyseat II bicycle carrier seats are involved in the recall. The model number can be found on the product's packaging.
