California based Razor USA is recalling thousands of Chinese-made scooters and off-road vehicles to repair safety hazards, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Thursday.
The recall affects 30,000 four-wheeled Dirt Quad Ride-On Vehicles and 103,000 three-wheeled scooters.
The CPSC warns the Ride-On Vehicles may unexpectedly surge forward, owing to a problem with the control module for the throttle. The PowerWing scooters are being recalled because foot platforms have sharp edges, creating a laceration danger.
The company has learned of 60 incidents involving the Ride-On Vehicles while 10 reports of lacerations, including four injuries that required surgery, have been reported for the scooters.
The Ride-On vehicles were sold in the U.S. from August 2006 through September 2007 for about $400 US. The scooters were sold in the U.S. and online from October 2007 through September 2008 for about $100 US.
Consumers should stop using the Ride-On Vehicles and scooters and contact the company for a replacement control module or foot platforms.
