Listen to this story

WASHINGTON — Toy maker Fisher-Price announced that it is recalling 44,000 children’s Power Wheels Barbie Campers due to an injury hazard, the National Consumer Product Safety Commission reported.

The children’s ride-on Power Wheels can continue to run after the foot pedal is released, posing an injury hazard, the agency explained.

This recall involves children’s Power Wheels Barbie Dream Campers with 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 pretend campfire. The model number is printed on a label under the hood.

Consumers should immediately take the recalled Power Wheels away from children, stop using them and contact Fisher-Price for a free repair.

Fisher-Price has received 17 reports of the power wheels continuing to run after the foot pedal was released. No injuries have been reported, the CPSC reported.

The devices were sold exclusively at Walmart stores nationwide and online at Walmart.com from July 2018 through January for about $400.

For more information, consumers may call 800.348.0751 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Eastern time Monday through Friday, or visit www.service.mattel.com.
