Radio Flyer Riding Toy Recalled

Posted by admin

radio flyer riding toy recallParents of toddlers take note: a popular Radio Flyer brand ride-on toy has been recalled following numerous reports of injuries.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a voluntary recall yesterday of the Scoot 'n Zoom children's riding toy. The toy can tip over while a child is riding it, causing the child to fall forward. There have been 10 reports of incidents so far, and six reports of injuries. In three cases, the children had teeth knocked loose or even knocked right out, and in another three cases the children cut their chins badly enough to need stitches.

This may be a small number of reports considering that about 165,000 Scoot 'n Zoom toys have been sold across the United States, but the injuries are serious enough that parents should immediately stop their children from using the toy.

The riding toy affected by the recall is made of red plastic with black wheels, and measured 19 inches long, 11 inches wide and 13.5 inches tall. Check the underside of the toy for the model number 711 molded into the plastic. It's important to note that a similar model, number 711B, is NOT affected by the recall. The image below points out differences between the two models.

The Scoot 'n Zoom toy was sold at Walmart and other retailers, as well as online at Amazon.com and Target.com from August 2010 through August 2011. If you purchased one of these toys, contact Radio Flyer for a free replacement or refund.

For additional information, contact Radio Flyer at (800) 621-7613 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, or visit the company's website at www.radioflyer.com.
