Global cycling company Trek has recalled remote bicycle lights for failing to operate properly. When paired with a remote transmitter, the light can operate intermittently, reducing the visibility of a rider. This poses an injury risk during night and low-visibility conditions. No injuries have been reported.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission advises consumers to immediately stop using the lights and return the lights where purchased or through Trek for a free replacement. The recall affects 600 units that were sold in bicycle stores nationwide and online at www.trekbikes.com from July through October.
Bicycle lights are offered by multiple industry suppliers. Trek lights are not carried in the industry according to a search of ESP, but Trek bicycles and other products are.
