5,000 Schwalbe Ultremo R Bicycle Tires RecalledOct 15, 2009 | Parker Waichman LLP
About 5, 000 Schwalbe Ultremo R Bicycle Tires have been recalled because of a fall hazard. According to the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC), the bicycle tires were manufactured by Ralf Bohle GmbH, of Germany, and imported by Moser Enterprises, of Canada.
The recalled bicycle tires were sold by bicycle specialty stores and on the Web at www.schwalbetires.com from April 2009 through May 2009 for about $75. “Schwalbe” and “Ultremo R” are printed on the sidewall of the tires.
According to the recall notice, the tire layers could separate causing the inner tube to rupture, posing a fall hazard to consumers. No injuries or accidents have been reported in relation to this defect.
Consumers should immediately stop using bicycles with the recalled tires and contact their local bicycle dealer for a free replacement set of tires.
