The recalled product is an X-Rider Car. It is a red, plastic toy scooter with a yellow handlebar and seat, and two blue stickers that simulate headlights. It is 14 inches high, 14 inches wide and 19 inches long. The middle of the handle bar contains the Step2 logo. Step2’s contact information is on the rider’s left side of the car. Children use their feet to propel the toy.

Incidents/Injuries: The firm has received four reports of incidents, with one incident resulting in head bumps and one resulting in a minor concussion and cuts to the gum and lip from the child’s front teeth.

Sold at: Target and other retailers from January 2012 through August 2012 for about $25. Manufacturer: The Step2 Company LLC, of Streetsboro, Ohio. Manufactured in: United Recall

Children’s Riding Toy Hazard: Children who lean too far forward on the seat can go over the handle bar and hit the ground. This poses a fall hazard.
