CERRITOS, CA (BRAIN)—Razor USA and the CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission) are recalling approximately 20,000 Razor E300 electric scooters because a weld can break causing the handlebar to detach.
This can cause the rider to lose control and fall from the scooter. Razor has received 25 reports of welds breaking on the handlebar, including three reports of minor injuries, such as scrapes and bruises.
The recall involves Model E300 electric scooters, which are powered by battery-operated motors. The model number appears on the tube that connects the headtube to the deck. The recalled scooters are blue or silver.
This recall includes only products with barcodes beginning in 100620-03 through -09. Products with other barcodes or no barcode are not included in this recall. The barcode can be located on the steering stem, the battery tray, the charger and the product’s packaging.
The scooters were manufactured in China and sold at Pep Boys stores nationwide and various Internet retail sites from January 2006 through October 2006 for between $190 and $230.
