WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the firm named below, today announced a voluntary recall of the following consumer product. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.

Name of Product: Children's Riding Toy

Units: About 15,500

Manufacturer: The Step2 Company LLC, of Streetsboro, Ohio.

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.

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.

Description: 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 located on the rider's left side of the car. Children use their feet to propel the toy.

Sold at: Target and other retailers from January 2012 through August 2012 for about $25.

Manufactured in: United States

Remedy: Consumers should immediately take the recalled toy away from children and contact Step2 to receive a free replacement toy.

Consumer Contact: Step2; toll-free at (866) 860-1887, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or online at www.step2.com, and click on the "View Details" link under Recall Information for more information.
