Dynacraft Recalls Powered Riding Toys Over Crash Risk
Details About the Dynacraft Recall
As of May 23, 2017, Dynacraft has recalled approximately 20,000 battery-powered children’s riding toys, including the following models:
- Surge 12V Camo 4X4
- Surge 12V XL Quad
- Tonka 12V Mighty Dump Truck
These toys have an acceleration pedal that can stick while children are driving the powered vehicles, which may result in crashes and falls. So far, Dynacraft has received 19 reports of pedals sticking, and at least seven of these incidents resulted in injuries to children.
These ride-on toys were manufactured in China and then sold at major retailers such as Walmart and Toys“R”Us. The vehicles were sold in 2016 and 2017 at prices ranging from $150 to $300. They have been recalled voluntarily by Dynacraft BSC Inc., of American Canyon, California.
What You Should Do If You Own a Dynacraft Toy
If you or someone you know owns one of these toys, you should not let children use the powered vehicles, and you should contact Dynacraft immediately to receive free replacement parts with instructions for their installation or to learn where the nearest authorized service center is so that you can bring the toy in for a free repair. More information can be found on the website of the Consumer Protection Safety Commission (CPSC).
