Yuba Mundo Cargo Bike Recall Issued Due To Foot Injury Risk

Roughly 1,000 cargo bicycles have been recalled after reports suggest that design defects may allow riders feet to become caught in the rear wheel while riding, posing a a serious crash and injury risk.

The Yuba Cargo Bike recall was announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission on March 20, after at least two reports were received of passengers having their feet caught in the rear wheel.

The bicycles have a passenger seat that is located behind and below the rider, above the back wheel. The tube framework of the bike is the only guard between the rear wheel and where the passengers legs would be located, allowing for clothing and feet to become easily trapped in the wheel spokes of the bikes.
