Xootr recalls adult kick scooters for fall hazard

By Colleen Kave, J.D.

Xootr, of Old Forge, Pennsylvania, has recalled around 3,000 Xootr adult kick scooters because the steer support can break during normal use, posing a fall hazard to the user (CPSC Recall Notice, No. 17-127, April 6, 2017).

Incidents and injuries. The firm has received six reports of breaks in steer supports, resulting in one report of scrapes and bruises from a fall.

Product description. This recall involves all Xootr adult kick scooters with the QuickClick push button latching mechanism. The silver scooters are 30 inches long by 10 inches wide and have a handlebar height of 36 inches. The Xootr logo is on the deck and lower section of the handlebar. The scooters have a plastic, wood, or metal deck, and can be identified by a black push button located on the steer support.

These adult kick scooters, which were manufactured in the United States, were sold at Lajolla Swim and Sport, Nyce Wheels, San Francyclo, and other sporting goods stores nationwide, and online at Amazon.com and Xootr.com from November 2016 through January 2017 for about $270.

Remedy. Consumers should stop using the recalled scooters immediately and contact the firm to receive a free repair.

Customer contact. For more information, customers may contact Xootr at 800-816-2724 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET, Monday through Friday, by email at support@xootr.com, or online at www.xootr.com and click on "Recall Information."
