Quality Bicycle Products are being recalled because of links to a falling hazard, according to news reports .
Bicycle carrier racks are being recalled because the rack's mounting bracket can crack or break causing it to fall onto the bicycle's front wheel posing a falling hazard to the rider, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
Included in the recall is: Quality Bicycle Products "Civia Loring bicycle racks, with black aluminum tubing and bamboo panels, that mount to the bicycle's front fork-the word "Civia" is printed on the rack's side panels."
The recalled racks were sold at independent bicycle stores nationwide from December 2009 through February 2011 for about $175 and were manufactured in Tawian, according to news reports.
