According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Radio Flyer has issued a voluntary recall. Which Radio Flyer wagons have been recalled? If you have a Radio Flyer eWagon for kids, here’s what you need to know about why Radio Flyer recalled its product and what you should do about it.
About 5,000 eWagon units were recently recalled due to improper wiring that can unintentionally activate the motor. Keep in mind, the current recall (which was issued on March 14, 2018) only includes eWagon products and does not extend to Radio Flyer’s other lines. Representatives for Radio Flyer did not immediately return Red Tricycle’s request for comment.
