The Step2 Company LLC announced a recall of Children’s Riding Toys. The firm has received four reports of incidents, with one incident resulting in head bumps and one resulting in a minor concussion and cuts to the gum and lip from the child’s front teeth.
Children who lean too far forward on the seat can go over the handle bar and hit the ground. This poses a fall hazard.
The children’s riding toys were sold from January 2012 through August 2012. This recall involves all X-Rider Cars. It is a red, plastic toy scooter with a yellow handlebar and seat, and two blue stickers that simulate headlights. It is 14 inches high, 14 inches wide and 19 inches long. The middle of the handle bar contains the Step2 logo. Step2’s contact information is located on the rider’s left side of the car. Children use their feet to propel the toy.
Approximately 15,500 children’s riding toys were sold at Target stores and other retailers from January 2012 through August 2012 for about $25.
According to the recall notice, consumers should immediately take the recalled toy away from children and contact Step2 to receive a free replacement toy. For additional information, contact Step2 at (866) 860-1887, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or online at http://www.step2.com
