On August 21, 2012, the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced a voluntary recall of childrens’ scooters manufactured by Micro-Mobility Ltd. and distributed by Kickboard USA. The recalled product is a three-wheeled Mini Micro scooter for children ages 3-5. Over 5,600 scooter are subject to the recall.
According to the CPSC press release, the defective products were recalled because the plastic platform covering the front wheel base is prone to breaking, causing a laceration hazard to children.
The scooters were sold at various toy stores, Amazon.com, and Kickboardusa.com for $85 from May, 2012 through July, 2012. The recalled models are identified by a sticker on the bottom of the scooters with the following model numbers: MM0079; MM0080; MM0109; and MM0113.
