The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Huffy Corp, yesterday announced a voluntary recall of about 5,040 2012 Huffy® 20-Inch Slider Tricycles because the handlebar can unexpectedly loosen while in use, causing the rider to lose control. This poses crash and fall hazards for the rider.
