The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Kickboard USA announced the voluntary recall of approximately 5,600 children’s scooters manufactured by Micro-Mobility Ltd. The scooters are being recalled because the one-piece plastic platform covering the front wheel base can break, becoming a laceration hazard to children. Though no injuries have been reported yet, people should immediately stop using the scooters.
The recalled three-wheel scooter was intended for kids ages 3-5 and was sold in the following colors: blue, orange, pink and aqua. “Micro” is written in black and blue letters on the metal handlebar and is also imprinted on the black hand grips. “Mini Micro” is written on the front plastic covering.
The scooters were sold for about $85 from May – July of 2012 at Amazon.com, Kickboardusa.com, and independent toy stores. Model and serial numbers are listed on a sticker on the scooter’s bottom. The recall includes the following:
