Instant Recall


Injuries prompt recall of scooter toy

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Radio Flyer of Chicago on Tuesday announced a voluntary recall of 165,000 Scoot ’n Zoom children’s riding toys.

It said the riding toy can tip over allowing a child to fall forward. The firm has received reports of 10 incidents with six injuries, including three where teeth were loosened or removed and three with chin lacerations requiring stitches.

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.

They were sold from August 2010 through August 2011 for about $20.

Parents should immediately take the Scoot ’n Zooms away from children and contact Radio Flyer to receive a free replacement unit or refund. For more information call 800-621-7613 or visit
