Step2 X-Rider Recall
November 27, 2012. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the company, Step2, has issued a recall of about 15,500 X-Rider children’s riding toys.
The X-Rider children’s toy has been recalled due to it’s susceptibility to falls. Though it does meet stability standards, there have been four reported incidents after children have leaned too far over the handlebars, causing them to fall forward over the handlebars and injure themselves. All consumers should take the toy away immediately and stop use.
