Pulse Performance Products is recalling its Krusher Pro Freestyle push scooters because one of the parts can break and cause riders to fall.
If your kids are into scooter riding, there's an important recall you need to know about. Almost 18,000 Krusher scooters are currently being recalled due to a faulty part that the company says may cause children to fall.
The down tube on Krusher Push Scooters is the issue—it can break and cause riders to take a spill. So far more than a dozen reports of kids falling have been received, including some with minor injuries. Yikes!
This recall involves Pulse Krusher Pro Freestyle scooters with factory code 083WY, item number 164257, and date code 10-8-2016 or earlier. The factory code, item number, and date code can be found on a label printed on the underside of the scooter deck. The 30-inch-high scooters were sold at Walmart and Westminster Trading Stores nationwide, and online at Walmart.com from June 2016 through May 2017 for about $40. They come in blue, and have the words "PULSE PERFORMANCE PRODUCTS" printed on the down tube. The recall number is: 17-160.
