Toys R Us Inc., of Wayne, N.J. has recalled its remote-controlled 3-channel helicopters. The rechargeable battery inside the helicopters can overheat, posing fire and burn hazards to consumers or nearby items.

The double-rotor helicopters are blue and white, approximately 9 inches high and have the Fast Lane logo on the top of the helicopter. They were sold with a remote control unit, a battery charger and a carrying case. Toys R Us has received 11 reports worldwide of the rechargeable battery overheating. No injuries have been reported.
The controllers were sold exclusively at Toys R Us stores nationwide and online at www.toysrus.com from September 2012 through January 2013 for about $100.
