    This recall involves about 158,000 Razor RipStik electric motorized caster boards.

    According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the boards have two wheels, a hub motor and a lithium ion battery.

    They have a wireless digital hand remote that controls the speed up to 10 mph. The manufacturing date is on the bar code label located on the bottom of the product and Razor USA LLC is embossed on the bottom. “RipStik” is printed on the top of the board. They are blue and black in color.

    Razor has received more than 700 reports of the rear wheel locking up, resulting in four injuries, including one loose tooth and three scrapes and bruises.

    They were sold at Target, Toys R Us, Walmart, and other stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com, Razor.com, Target.com, toysrus.com and Walmart.com and other websites from February 2016 through April 2017 for about $180.

    Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled caster boards and contact Razor to receive a free repair kit.
