Two models and several colors of this trailer were recalled. Image here represents just one.
According to the US Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC), Burley Design LLC is voluntarily recalling approximately 2,700 of its 2009 d'lite ST and Solo ST Child Trailers. The axle assembly's internal sleeve can loosen, causing one wheel to separate from the trailer. This poses a risk of injury to the child occupant or bike rider.

The recalled products are two-wheeled child trailers designed to carry one or two children behind a bicycle. Only the 2009 d'lite ST and 2009 Solo ST trailers with serial numbers that begin with D939 or D948 are included in the recall. The serial number is located in the rear cargo area behind the seat on the lower left rear frame tube. The trailers have "d'lite ST" or "solo ST" screen printed on the cover.
Manufactured in the Philippines, the trailers were sold by independent bicycle retailers and specialty outdoor retailers nationwide and on various web sites from November 2008 through June 2009 for between $550 and $600.
