Razor Recalls Scooters and 4-Wheel Vehicles

By Admin on September 26, 2008 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

Toy and scooter manufacturer Razor USA and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) have announced the recall of thousands of Razor scooters and four-wheeled ride-on vehicles, due to two separate product defects that can cause injuries to riders.

The scooter recall announced Thursday involves about 103,000 Razor "PowerWing" three-wheeled scooters, black or silver in color. According to a CPSC Press Release, the scooter's foot platforms can have sharp edges and may pose a laceration hazard. Razor USA has received 10 reports of cuts to scooter riders' Achilles tendons or ankles -- with four riders requiring tendon surgery and three needing stitches. CPSC is advising consumers NOT to return the scooters to retailers, but instead to contact Razor USA directly to receive a free set of replacement foot platforms.

Also on Thursday, CPSC announced that Razor is recalling about 30,000 of its "Dirt Quad" electric ride-on vehicles, because a potential defect involving the throttle control can cause the vehicle to surge forward unexpectedly. CPSC advises "Dirt Quad" owners to contact Razor USA to receive a replacement controller at no cost.
