Peg Perego USA, of Fort Wayne, IN, is recalling its 850 Polaris Sportsman ride-on, 24-volt battery operated toy vehicles intended for children ages 5 to 7 years. A relay on the circuit board can fail causing the vehicle’s motor to overheat and ignite, posing fire and burn hazards.
The recall involves about 3000 units sold through online retailers including Amazon.com, Cabelas.com, Target.com, ToysRUs.com and Wal-Mart.com from October 2014 through May 2015. Peg Perego has received three reports of the children’s ride-on toy vehicles overheating, including one report of a burn.
Consumers should immediately stop children from using the recalled toy vehicles and contact Peg Perego to receive a free replacement circuit board.
