Recalls This Week: Bicycle Forks, Sandals, Heaters

By The Associated Press

A line of bicycle forks that can bend and cause a rider to fall and propane heater/cookers that pose a fire hazard are among this week's list of recalled products.

Here's a more detailed look:

BICYCLE FORKS

DETAILS: Salsa Vaya bicycle forks stamped with batch codes 2011 02 21, 2011 04 11, 2011 06 14, and 2011 09 09 and all Salsa La Cruz bicycle forks stamped with the batch codes 2011 03 01, 2011 04 08, 2011 05 30, and 2011 09 09. The batch code is stamped on the steerer tube. The forks are made of tubular chromoly steel and can be installed on any bicycle that takes a threadless 1 1/8 inch steerer tube. They were sold individually and as original equipment on Salsa Vaya bicycles and framesets. The manufacturer's insignia "CWI" is stamped on the steerer tube. "Salsa" is printed on the bicycle's frame. They were sold from February 2011 through June 2012.

WHY: The bicycle fork can bend above the disc brake mount, posing a fall hazard to the rider.

INCIDENTS: Eight reports of forks bending above the disc brake mount. No injuries have been reported.

HOW MANY: About 1,700.

WHY: The metal flower on the shoe can detach, posing a choking hazard.

INCIDENTS: Six reports of the flowers detaching and eleven reports of flowers loosening. No injuries have been reported.

HOW MANY: About 7,500.
