This Time, There’s a Recall That Could Affect Your Kids
Not a day goes by that we don’t hear of another recall, but this one is troubling since it involves a popular children’s toy.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced that the Razor Ripstick motorized caster boards have been recalled due to a fall hazard.
This recall affects 158,000 boards, and according to the CPSC, the following injuries have occurred:
Razor has received more than 700 reports of the rear wheel locking up, resulting in four injuries, including one loose tooth and three scrapes and bruises.
The boards were sold at: "Target, Toys R Us, Walmart, and other stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com, Razor.com, Target.com, toysrus.com and Walmart.com and other websites from February 2016 through April 2017 for about $180."
If you have one of these boards you are encouraged to contact Razor by visiting their website and requesting a repair kit that should take care of the problem. But until you do that, do not let anyone use the boards.
