Bicycle chains' links can crack

September 13, 2009|Times Staff and Wire Reports

About 24,000 10-speed Sram bicycle chains with PowerLock connector links, manufactured in Portugal by Sram of Chicago, are being recalled because the links can crack and allow the chain to separate from the bicycle.

One incident has been reported in the U.S. and three incidents outside of the U.S. No injuries have been reported.

The recalled items were sold at specialty bike stores nationwide between January and August 2009. Information: (800) 346-2928, www.sram.com or www.cpsc.gov.

* About 1,400 children's animal masks and pendants, manufactured in China by Team Work Trading of Los Angeles, are being recalled because they contain high levels of lead. (Lead can be toxic if ingested and is considered particularly dangerous for children.)

No incidents have been reported.

The recalled items were sold nationwide from November 2008 through March 2009. Information: (213) 680-4489 or www .cpsc.gov.
