The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Hayes Bicycle Group of Mequon, WI are voluntarily recalling the SunRinglé Hollow Quick Release devices for bicycles. The recall effects approximately 800 units, which can unexpectedly fail or break when locked in position on the bicycle, causing the rider to lose control, which poses a serious fall hazard.

Hayes Bicycle Group has received four reports of the quick release devices breaking, but no injuries have been reported. The devices were made in Taiwan and sold at bicycle specialty stores and dealers nationwide from June 2007 through May 2008 for about $17.
