Radio Flyer, the children’s toy manufacturer best known for creating the “little red wagon,” recently announced a recall of their Scoot ‘n Zoom children’s riding toy.
Approximately 165,000 riding toys are being recalled because they may tip over, allowing a child to fall forward while riding. Radio Flyer has received ten reports of incidents regarding the fall hazard, including six injuries – three of which involved teeth that were loosened or removed and three with chin lacerations requiring stitches.
The recalled Scoot ‘n Zoom is made of red molded plastic with black wheels and has the model number 711 molded on the underside of the toy. Units with a yellow UPC sticker underneath the product with model #711B are not recalled. The recalled toys were sold from August 2010 through August 2011 at Walmart and other retailers, plus online at Amazon.com and Target.com for about $20.
Consumers should take the recalled products away from children and contact Radio Flyer to receive a free replacement toy or refund. For additional information, consumers may contact Radio Flyer at 800-621-7616, or visit radioflyer.com.
