CPSC, Firms Announce Recall of Mountain Bikes & Underwater Strobes

This press release consists of two recalls. Please choose the appropriate recall below.

- Mountain Bikes - Dynacraft Industries Inc. of San Rafael, Calif., is voluntarily recalling about 3,000 Magna "Great Divide," 21- speed mountain bikes. These bikes could have defective handle bar stems which will not tighten sufficiently to lock onto the bicycles.

- Underwater Strobes - Sea & Sea Underwater Photography (U.S.A.) Inc., of Carlsbad, Calif., is recalling about 7,000 underwater camera strobe lights, used as a light source for photography to replace the battery cap. If the strobe becomes flooded, gas build-up can cause the battery cap to forcefully eject off of the strobe or cause the front section of the strobe to violently separate from the back section.
