SHREVEPORT, La. - Razor is recalling 158,000 RipStik electric motorized caster boards after several people suffered injuries.
According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission the rear wheel can stop rotating and lock up while in use, posing a fall hazard.
The boards have two wheels, a hub motor and a lithium ion battery. They have a wireless digital hand remote that controls the speed up to 10 mph.
The manufacturing date is on the bar code label located on the bottom of the product and Razor USA LLC is embossed on the bottom. “RipStik” is printed on the top of the board. They are blue and black in color.
Razor has received more than 700 reports of the rear wheel locking up, resulting in four injuries, including one loose tooth and three scrapes and bruises.
The boards were sold at Target, Toys R Us, Walmart, and other stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com,
Razor.com, Target.com, toysrus.com and Walmart.com and other websites from Feb. 2016 through April 2017 for about $180.
