Trek-brand bicycle handlebars are being recalled because they can break and send the rider headlong.
And a children’s activity desk and water-filled teethers are being recalled this week due to choking hazards and microbial contamination. See below for more information on each specific recall.
Carbon handlebars/stems and Trek bikes
Risk: Trek Carbon handlebars/stems and some bikes are being recalled due to a fall hazard. The following three products are affected: Trek MY22 Speed Concept SLR bikes, Trek MY21-MY22 Emonda SLR bikes, and Bontrager Aeolus RSL VR-C handlebar/stem.
The carbon bar can break during use, posing a tripping hazard. The affected products were sold from June 2020 to June 2022.
As of August 17, 2022, the company has received an incident report in Canada regarding the Aeolus handlebar/stem resulting in concussion, stitches and dental injury.

Kidoozie Brand My First Activity Desk
Risk: Kidoozie’s “My First Activity Desk” brand is being recalled due to the potential for jaw jamming and risk of protrusion.
The model number for this product is G02587 with UPC 020373035875. The activity desk is intended for use by children 12 months and older. It has removable legs and adjustable cradle straps and has the following dimensions: 38.1cm x 8.3cm x 26.7cm.
The recalled product may pose a jamming and jaw protrusion hazard when used as a crib toy. When a child’s jaw gets stuck in a product, there is a risk of damage to teeth and gums.
The company reported that 1,826 units of the affected product were sold in Canada from January 2020 to March 2022.
What you should do: Immediately remove the recalled “My First Activity Desk” from the reach of children. Contact Epoch Everlasting Play LLC for a refund or replacement or visit their website here.
Tootsie Baby Water-Filled Teethers & Teethers
Risk: Tootsie Baby Water-Filled Teethers and Teethers are being recalled due to microbial contamination.
Health Canada’s sampling and evaluation program has determined that the fill fluid is contaminated with bacteria Bacillus cereus, Candida parapsilosis and Omitinibacillus californiansis.
These bacteria do not usually cause disease in healthy people. However, the bacteria can affect children with weakened immune systems, causing stomach pain, vomiting and diarrhea, if the teething ring is punctured and the liquid filling is ingested.
The water filled teethers feature a hollow circle shape, with a square/triangle/circle pattern and the teether keys include two oversized keys attached to a blue ring. Both teethers are available in semi-transparent colors of red, aqua, and blue.
The company reported that 9,901 units of the affected product have been sold in Canada.
What you should do: Immediately take the recalled teethers away from infants and discard the product. For more information, contact CTG Brands Incorporated by e-mail at [email protected].

Risk: MyHome Gll Morningstar Cordless Shade is being recalled due to strangulation and choking hazard to children.
What you should do: IStop using the product immediately and keep all cords out of the reach of children.
Home Basics Cordless Cellular Blackout Shades
Risk: Home Basics Cordless Cellular Blackout Shades are being recalled due to a choking hazard. But this choking hazard does not involve loose cords and strangulation as usual with blinds or blinds. This risk comes from the small end pieces of the bottom rail which come off and can be swallowed by a child.
What you should do: Immediately remove end caps from bottom rail and contact Kent Building Supplies for a repair kit.
