Scoot 'n Zoom riding toy recalled due to fall hazard

WASHINGTON, D.C. (KAIT) - The Consumer Product Safety Commission in cooperation with Radio Flyer of Chicago, IL has recalled their Scoot 'n Zoom children's riding toy.

According to the CPSC, the toy can tip over, allowing a child to fall forward while riding.

So far, the firm has received reports of 10 incidents with six injuries. In three of those injuries, teeth were either loosened or removed and three children had chin lacerations that required stitches.

The riding 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. About 165,000 units were recalled.

The riding toy was 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 web site at www.radioflyer.com.
