A company that imports CO2 bicycle tire inflators is recalling about 24,000 units that were sold exclusively at WalMart stores nationwide.

The Zefal brand cartridges, containing pressurized carbon dioxide used to inflate a bicycle tire, can break at the pump head.

Although no injuries have been reported, importer Todson Inc. of North Attleboro, Mass., launched the recall with the assistance of the US Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The cartridges were sold at WalMarts for about $15 each from August through November 2009.

Consumers should not use the cartridges and can return them to the store for a full refund.

Check the CPSC for more information.
