The following recalls have been announced:

The company has received 15 reports of the bicycle forks breaking, including five reports of injuries including a broken collarbone, a concussion, broken ribs and bruises. Details: by phone at 800-245-3872; by Web at http://www.cannondale.com or http://www.cpsc.gov.

Don't have a Cannondale bike, but I do eat crackers. Tell me more about the cracker recall.

Cannondale has done two recalls over the last few weeks. One for faulty forks on mountain bikes and the other for faulty cranks on road bikes. I believe both are carbon fiber so they may want to find a new supplier.

I have not heard about bad crackers but the Chinese are sending us poison toothpaste. The plan is once they kill all of our pets we are next. Walmart/China will rule the world.
