Child Bicycle Carrier Seat Recall Issued by Todson, Possible Amputation Risk

By Alpert Schreyer on April 19, 2012

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CSPC), in conjunction with Todson, Inc., has announced a voluntary recall for their bicycle child carrier seat, which affects an estimated 40,000 units. The name of the recalled product, manufactured in Taiwan, is the Topeak Babyseat II Bicycle Carrier Seats made by the Massachusetts-based company. A child can place his or her fingers in the opening at the grab bar’s hinge mechanism, and when the consumer opens the bar to remove the child from the seat, the child’s fingertips may be caught in the hinge mechanism. This ultimately poses a fingertip amputation or laceration hazard to the child.

Presently, the firm has received two reports of serious incidents, including near amputations that resulted in stitches and a crushed finger. The model numbers of the recalled products, which can be found on the product’s packaging, include: TCS2100, TCS2101, and TCS2102. The plastic, gray bicycle child carrier seat was sold from January 2009 through April 2012 for $140 to $180 at a variety of retail stores and independent bicycle dealers across the country, including REI and J&B Imports. The CPSC is advising that consumers stop using the product immediately and contact Todson for a free hinge cover retrofit kit by calling (800) 250-3068 or visiting

Families trust that the many products they use for their children each day will be safe and risk-free, but when a manufacturer fails to properly test an item or has inadequate manufacturing standards, a serious child injury can occur as a result.
