Holiday-Presents Daily Product Safety Update -Edition number 18
Today: Inokim Quick4 Electric Scooter
Traditionally, the end of the year is a time of conviviality and togetherness. Giving presents is an undeniable part of this. But what should you pay attention to when it comes to the safety of these presents? There are still products available that are (partly) unsafe. Fortunately, this is just a fragment of the total offer.
We are here to keep you up to date on the latest developments in product safety. On the one hand, we pay attention to products that are being withdrawn from the market because of included hazardous parts. On the other hand, we provide information on details you should look out for when purchasing products that are still available.
Every day the latest news, alerts and mentionable facts.
Keep yourself informed with our Holiday-Presents Daily to make sure that the present you give is a present that's safe. Once every weekday we will provide a newsletter including the latest news on product safety and recalls, important alerts and mentionable facts that relate to the safety of products. Millions of products have been recalled this year. Here's a video from the US Consumer Reports on how to protect yourself and your family. Hopefully our newsletter will add to your and your children's safety.
Inokim Quick4 Electric Scooter
The Australian watchdog Australian Competition and Consumer Commission ordered the recall of the electric scooter as seen on the picture below. The supplier is Eco Scooters Pty Ltd.
The adjustable T-bar on the steering stem may crack or fracture if the bolt is overtightened or if the scooter is ridden in rough conditions, such as off-road, over kerbs or speed bumps. If the T-bar stem cracks or fractures while the scooter is being ridden, there is an increased risk of an accident or serious injury or death to the rider.
What should consumers do?
Consumers should stop riding the scooter and contact Eco Scooters to organise for the scooter to be repaired, free of charge.
This is just an example of product safety information about toys and their hazards that you need to be aware of. With our Holiday-Presents Daily we will continue to follow the news on Product Safety and we will continue to keep you informed.
