The paint on the recalled scooters contains levels of lead that exceed the federal lead paint ban, posing a lead poisoning hazard. Lead is toxic if ingested by young children and can cause adverse health issues.
This recall involves Bolt Foldable Scooters for children. They are painted black with a blue or purple standing platform. “APPLLC120806218142” is printed in white letters on the top left corner of the blue or purple standing platform. “Bolt” is printed on a blue or purple sticker on the front of the scooter in white lettering. The scooter measures approximately 23 inches by 3.75 inches by 20 inches when assembled and weighs about 2.7 pounds.
Consumers should immediately take the recalled scooters away from children, stop using them and contact Anker Play Products for a full refund.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risk of injury or death associated with the use of thousands of types of consumer products. Deaths, injuries, and property damage from consumer product-related incidents cost the nation more than $1 trillion annually. CPSC's work to ensure the safety of consumer products has contributed to a decline in the rate of injuries associated with consumer products over the past 50 years.
Federal law prohibits any person from selling products subject to a Commission ordered recall or a voluntary recall undertaken in consultation with the CPSC.
