The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Huffy Corp., of Miamisburg, Ohio, announced a voluntary recall of 2007 Huffy “Howler” and “Highland” Bicycles. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.

The recall includes 2007 model year, multi-speed bicycles with 26-inch, 24-inch or 20-inch wheels. The “Howler” was sold in black (model K3587, boy’s model), blue (model K4587, men’s model), and red (model K6587, men’s model).
