CPSC, Pacific Cycle LLC Announce Recall of Water Bottles Included With Girls' Bikes

WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Pacific Cycle LLC, of McFarland, Wis., is voluntarily recalling about 42,000 water bottles included in the handle bags of girls Mongoose Heart Breaker bicycles. The drinking valve on the cap can detach, presenting a potential choking hazard.

Pacific Cycle has received two reports of drinking valves detaching. No injuries have been reported.

The recalled water bottles are 12 oz. translucent blue bottles with a white cap and a silver decal that bears the "Heart Breaker" logo. The water bottles are an accessory to Mongoose Heart Breaker Bicycles. The Mongoose Heart Breaker is a 16- inch blue girls' bicycle, which has logos on the frame that say, "Mongoose" and "Heart Breaker."

The bicycles with the water bottle were sold at Wal-Mart stores nationwide and on the Wal-Mart website from July 2000 through January 2001 for about $60.

Consumers should take the bottles away from children immediately and discard them. To receive a replacement water bottle, call Pacific Cycle toll-free at (800) 626-2811 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, or visit the Pacific Cycle website at www.mongoose.com.

This recall does not include water bottles included with Roadmaster Heart Breaker bicycles.
