February 8, 2011

WASHINGTON, D.C. (TV20Detroit) --- A popular snowbike has been recalled because of a potential danger.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission has recalled the Outer Edge Snow Bike made by Tech 4 Kids of Canada.

The CPSC says the front ski can crack or break, causing the snow bike to stop suddenly and posing a fall hazard to users.

The recall includes OUTER EDGE brand Snow MX-Ski-Doo® and the Snow MX-X Games™ snow bikes. The Snow MX-Ski-Doo snow bike is yellow and black with "Ski-Doo" printed on the steel frame and on the front ski. The Snow MX-X Games snow bike is blue and black with "Snow MX," a skull and swords printed on the steel frame and on the front ski. "OUTER EDGE" is printed on the snow bikes' packaging.

The snow bike was sold at Costco, sporting goods stores and other retailers nationwide and online at Amazon.com and Walmart.com from September 2010 through January 2011 for about $150.
