Consumer Recalls: Radio Flyer Riding Toy

Radio Flyer, of Chicago, Ill. announced a voluntary recall of Scoot 'n Zoom children's riding toy because it can tip over allowing a child to fall forward while riding, posing a fall hazard to young children. The recalled toy is red molded plastic with black wheels and measures 19 inches long, 11 inches wide and 13.5 inches tall. 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. The affected riding toys were sold at Walmart and other retailers, and online at Amazon.com and Target.com from August 2010 through August 2011 for about $20.

Consumers should immediately take the recalled products away from children and contact Radio Flyer to receive a free replacement unit 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.

Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.

Thank you for putting recalls on your site. I get the emails from CPSC but they're easy to overlook. We have this toy and I just submitted the form to send it back. Thank you again!

I called today b/c we own 2 of these and they were very nice. They send you a package to mail them the WHEELS ONLY and they ship you a brand new Scoot N Zoom once they receive your wheels.
