Bicycle seat being recalled due to crushed fingers

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Todson is voluntarily recalling 40,000 of its Topeak Babyseat II Bicycle Carrier seats.

The recall was after it was discovered children's fingers can get caught in the grab bar's hinge mechanism, posing a hazard.

The company has received two reports of incidents involving near amputations that resulted in stitches and a crushed finger.

Consumers should stop using the seats immediately and contact Todson to receive a free repair kit.
