California-based Razor USA LLC is recalling about 20,000 electric scooters because the handlebars can detach which can cause the rider to lose control, the U.S Consumer Product Safety Commission said Friday.
The company has learned of 25 incidents, involving three minor injuries, in which the handlebars separated from the scooter.
The recall applies to the Model E300 Electric Scooters with the barcodes 100620-03 through -09.
The scooters were sold at Pep Boys stores in the U.S. and through online retailers from January 2006 through October 2006 for between $190 US and $230 US.
Consumers should stop using the product and contact the company for a free repair kit.
