WASHINGTON, Feb. 12 (UPI) -- Canadian firm Tech 4 Kids Inc. is recalling 2,100 snow bikes due to a fall hazard, U.S. regulators said.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission said OUTER EDGE snow bikes imported from China include front skis that can break, causing the bike to stop abruptly, possibly injuring the user.

The snow bikes were sold nationwide at Walmart.com and Amazon.com from September 2010 through January 2011for about $150.

The recall involves yellow and black Snow MX-Ski-Doo bikes and blue and black Snow MX-X Games bikes.

Consumers were advised to stop using the snow bikes and return then to the retailer for a full refund.

Consumers can call 866-287-4761 for information.
