Your kids can't get enough of cruising around in their Power Wheels Barbie Dream Camper? Then you might want to double-check the motorized car because Fisher-Price just recalled it. According to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission, 44,000 units of the product are being recalled because they pose an "injury hazard."
"The children's ride-on Power Wheels can continue to run after the foot pedal is released, posing an injury hazard," said the recall. The ride-ons in question were sold at Walmart in store and online between July 2018 and January 2019 for about $400. Think you have an affected product? Look for the model number FRC29 under the hood to be sure.
Concerned parents should take the camper away from children immediately. Fisher-Price is also offering to repair affected vehicles for free.
"Our Authorized Power Wheels Service Centers will remediate the vehicle with a new foot pedal and foot switch housing free of charge," says its website. "In addition, the service centers will complete a free safety inspection." Still have questions? Call Fisher-Price at 800-348-0751 between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or head to its website for more info.
