Radio Flyer, of Chicago, Ill., has recalled about 165,000 Scoot ‘n Zoom children’s riding toys. The riding toy can tip over allowing a child to fall forward while riding, posing a fall hazard to young children. The company received reports of ten incidents with six injuries, including three where teeth were loosened or removed, and three with chin lacerations requiring stitches. The riding toy is red molded plastic with black wheels and measures 19 inches long, 11 inches wide and 13.5 inches tall. The riding toy’s model number 711 can be found molded on the underside of the toy. Units with a yellow UPC sticker underneath the product with model #711B are not recalled.
The toys were sold at Walmart and other retailers, and online at Amazon.com and Target.com from August 2010 through August 2011 for about $20. Consumers should immediately take the recalled products away from children and contact Radio Flyer to receive a free replacement unit or refund. For additional information, contact Radio Flyer at (800) 621-7613, or visit the company’s website at www.radioflyer.com. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is still interested in receiving incident or injury reports that are either directly related to this product recall or involve a different hazard with the same product.
