Huffy has recalled approximately 500 of its bicycles, model year 2014 Huffy TR 745 and TR-S 740, because of a hazardous defect. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the front disc brakes unexpectedly stop the front wheel and could cause the entire wheel to detach from the bicycle. These bikes could have been purchased at Walmart.com, Sears Puerto Rico, and The Northwest Company (Cost U Less) from September 2014 through May 2015. Huffy encourages consumers not to buy the product although no reports of injury have been made.
