Today the CPSC announced a recall of over 5,000 2012 Huffy 20-Inch Slider Tricycles. The handlebar can unexpectedly loosen while in use, causing the rider to lose control.
This acknowledged defect poses potential crash and fall hazards for young riders. The tricycles were sold exclusively at Toys R Us nationwide from January 2013 through February 2013 for about $100.
The tricycle has a white frame with a black seat and black handlebars. “Huffy” is printed on the front of the frame; “Slider” is printed on the frame’s side. The model number, 98682, is located on the frame under the seat.
