Woom Bikes USA has issued a recall of all sizes of their 2018 to 2021 model bikes that were made for children aged 18 months to 14 years old.

Additionally, Woom Bikes is contacting all known purchasers directly. The bikes were sold on woom.com, Amazon.com, and local bike stores nationwide beginning in September of 2018 through March of 2022.
