The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and MGA Entertainment Inc. have announced the voluntary recall of “Bratz Stylin’” Scooters, which were sold at toy and discount chain stores nationwide from September 2003 through November 2004.

The Army and Air Force Exchange Service sold the scooters as a promotional item in November 2004 and received 1,774 units for the sale.

Owners of the scooters are being urged to stop using the product immediately as the wheels can break or become damaged, possibly causing riders to fall and suffer injuries. Six reports of cracked wheels have been received; all incidents resulted in cuts, scrapes and bruises; one resulted in a broken arm.

The recalled scooter is a non-motorized two-wheeled unit with a folding hinge and an adjustable handlebar. The platform is purple with a bright pink Bratz logo on the top surface. Scooters containing information identifying the product as Item No. 266563, with a date of manufacture before July 2004, and manufactured by Jurong Dumar Bicycle, Inc. are included in this recall.

This information can be located either in the area directly beneath the scooter platform or at the bottom of the scooter near the rear wheel.

Consumers should contact MGA Entertainment Inc. for a refund or replacement scooter. Overseas customers are being asked to contact the supplier through the Web site or return the item to the store where it was purchased for a full refund.
