WASHINGTON, D.C. (11/28/12) – The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with The Step2 Company LLC, of Streetsboro, Ohio, today announced a voluntary recall of a product called, “X-Rider Car,” a children’s riding toy.
The recall of the children's riding toy encompasses about 15, 500 units. The issue with these units is that 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 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.
This item 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.
This recalled items was sold at Target and other retailers from January 2012 through August 2012 for about $25, and was manufactured in the United States
Consumers should immediately take the recalled toy away from children and contact Step2 to receive a free replacement toy.
