Murf Electric Bikes Issues Recall for Fall and Injury Hazards
Murf Electric Bikes LLC is recalling about 9,000 electric bicycles due to a fall and injury hazard. The recalled bicycles do not meet the U.S. safety standard for electric bicycles, which could cause the bicycles to malfunction and fall, potentially injuring the rider.
The recalled bicycles were sold under various model names, including The Fat Murf, Alpha Cargo, Alpha Murf, Fat Murf Step Thru, Fat Pax Step Thru, Izzy Step Thru, Mini Murf, Pax Step Thru, and Izzy Beach Cruiser. They were sold in black, white, beige, blue, cream, gray, and green colors. The bicycles have an electric assist motor and are equipped with a bell, a headlight, and a tail light. “Murf” is printed on the sides of the down tube of the bicycle frame.
The recalled bicycles were sold at Murf’s store in San Clemente, California, online at www.murfelectricbikes.com, and at bicycle stores nationwide from July 2017 through April 2022 for between $1,700 and $3,000.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled bicycles and contact Murf’s store for a free repair. Consumers can also perform the repair themselves using a video available online. Murf Electric Bikes is contacting all purchasers directly.
The company has received at least one report of a fall and one minor injury related to the recalled bicycles.
