If you own a Trek bike you need this information

Melissa Chan at the New York Daily News has this article titled, "Trek recalls nearly 1 million bicycles after rider becomes paralyzed". From the article:
     Trek Bicycle has recalled nearly 1 million bikes in the United States and Canada after a rider was paralyzed and two others were injured.
     The recall, issued Tuesday, affects 900,000 bicycles in the U.S. and 98,000 in Canada from model years 2000 through 2015.
     The bikes' front wheels can "come to a sudden stop" or separate from the bicycle if the open quick release lever on the front wheel hub comes into contact with the front disc brake assembly, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said.
