Recall Alert: Men's Bicycles & Twirrla Rattles

September 27, 2011 Updated Sep 27, 2011 at 5:40 PM EST

(WBNG Binghamton) Bicycles with a chain that can cause the rider to lose control -- and wipe out; and a baby's rattle with parts that can fall off shaking things up with the threat of a choking hazard.

Bridgeway is pulling 91,000 men's bicycles from racks nationwide.

It's because the company has received 11 reports of incidents, 9 of which brought injury in the form of lacerations and contusions.

The recall affects the "NEXT" branded men's 26 inch hybrid bicycles.

They're red or orange, with "Power X" and "Suspension" printed on the frame.

The bikes were sold for about $100 between February and July of this year.

If you own the bicycles in question, contact Bridgeway at 877-934-3228. It will repair the bicycles for free.

You may also go to the company's website, www.powerxbike.com.

Meanwhile, the Manhattan group says its pulling about 3300 Twirrlla Wooden Rattles from stores and online shelves nationwide.

It hasn't received any reports of injury yet, but the company says the rattle has U-shaped pieces in the middle, that could fall off and cause a baby to choke.

The wooden rattle is about 6 inches long, and sold for about $12.

You may have purchased yours at specialty baby stores, as well as at ManhattanToy.com earlier this year.

Consumers may take the rattle away from children, and bring it back to the store to get a full refund.

Call the company at 800-541-1345, or go to its website www.manhattantoy.com for more information.
