Floor Pump Recall

CPSC, Todson Inc. Announce Recall of Bicycle Tire Floor Pumps

WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Todson Inc., of Foxboro, Mass., is voluntarily recalling about 10,000 floor pumps, which are used for bicycle tires. The pressure gauge lens can separate from the pump and strike a consumer, causing injury.

Todson has received one report of a pressure gauge lens detaching and striking a consumer, who suffered an eye injury.

The recalled Topeak Joe Blow Comp Floor Pumps are black (with gray or silver trim) and stand about 26 inches tall. The plastic pumps have the following date codes, which are located under the pressure gauge: 200003 through 200012 and 200101 through 200108. The words "Made in
Taiwan" and "Joe Blow COMP" are printed on the side of the pump.

Independent bicycle retailers nationwide sold these pumps between March 2000 and August 2001 for about $40.

Consumers should stop using this pump immediately and contact Todson at (800) 250-3068 or log on to the company's website at www.Topeak.com to receive a replacement pump.
