Tech 4 Kids

is recalling Outer Edge Snow Bikes in the U.S. and Canada because their front skis can crack or break, launching riders off the bikes.

The Canadian company has three reports of users being hurt in sudden stops caused by the bikes' broken front skis, reports the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. Injuries included a dislocated shoulder and a cut deep enough to need stitches.

In the U.S., about 2,100 bikes were sold at Costco, Amazon.com, Walmart.com, and sporting goods stores and other retailers nationwide, from September 2010 through January 2011. They were priced at about $150 each. In Canada, about 22,000 bikes were sold at stores including Walmart, Sears and Toys R Us.
