Yeah, any company can have a recall.
But I used to work at a Toys R Us, and we had excellent mechanics at the time. One of them had even been a pit-crew mechanic for a racer (among other interesting jobs.) I asked them questions about bikes, and they complained about what garbage all the bikes we sold were, about how many were returned defective, and how hard they were to put together so that they actually worked, and that even the expensive Pacific bikes we were just starting to get were second-rate bikes with slightly better name-brand add-ons. That's the real reason I bought a bike-shop bike this time, and told my brother to keep my old Huffy which his family has been borrowing for five years.
(Note, though--that particular model of Huffy, whose name I can't recall, actually was a half-decent machine, and was even mentioned in a few bike publications as an extreme low-end best choice.)
