"Ion 700 RT," "700 Lumen" and "Transmtr" are printed on the side of the Ion 700 RT lights and the date code is printed on the bottom under the charging port cover.

The recalled lights have the following date code:

  • Bontrager Flare RT (Sold individually, but lights can also be paired with a remote transmitter) - Af0400001 through Af0400407
  • Bontrager Ion 700 RT (Sold as part of a set with a remote transmitter) - 1606

The lights were sold nationwide and online at www.trekbikes.com from July 2016 through October 2016 for between $60 and $240.

Consumers are advised to immediately stop using the recalled lights with a remote transmitter and return the lights to the store where purchased or contact Trek to receive a free replacement bicycle light.
