Dollar General Merchandising Inc., has recalled about 200,000 battery operated toy “Speed Boats.” The two battery terminals can come into contact with each other, causing the battery to overheat, posing a burn hazard to consumers. Dollar General has received two reports of the batteries overheating. Thus far, no injuries have been reported. The recalled toy speed boats are lightweight plastic toy boats supported by an inflatable hull with “outboard” motors on them.
The motor uses two AA batteries. The toy boat measures about 12 inches long by 8 inches wide and comes in various colors and designs. Dollar General stores nationwide sold the speed boats from March 2008 through July 2008 for $3 each. Consumers should take these toys away from young children and return them to the store where purchased for a refund or replacement product.
