Barbie Dream Campers can continue to run after release of foot pedal.

Fisher-Price has recalled around 44,000 children’s Power Wheels Barbie Dream Campers because the ride-on toys can continue to run after the foot pedal is released, posing an injury hazard (CPSC Recall Notice, No. 19-058, February 5, 2018).

Incidents and injuries. Fisher-Price has received 17 reports of the toys continuing to run after the foot pedal was released. No injuries have been reported.

Product description. This recall involves children’s Power Wheels Barbie Dream Campers, model number FRC29, with a grey foot pedal. The recalled ride-on vehicles are hot pink with blue accents and have the Barbie logo printed on the back. They are battery operated and have a play kitchen, a fold-out grill, and a pretend campfire.
