Nearly one million Trek bicycle models are being recalled after three riders were injured, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced on Tuesday.

A quick release lever on the bike's front wheel can unexpectedly stop the wheel or cause it to fall off, officials report.

One person was left paralyzed and two people suffered minor injuries due to the bicycle's malfunction

The recall impacts Trek bicycles from model years 2000 through 2015 equipped with front disc brakes and a black or silver quick release lever. For more information see the CPSC recall description here.
