Toys R Us Recalls about 6,500 Remote-Controlled Helicopters
The rechargeable battery inside the helicopters can overheat, posing fire and burn hazards to consumers or nearby items.
This recall involves the Fast Lane FA-005 Radio Control 3-Channel Helicopter with Gyro Stabilizer and Charger, model number 5F5F2F5. The model number is printed on the front of the product packaging and on the underside of the helicopter. The double-rotor helicopters are blue and white, approximately 9-inches high and have the Fast Lane logo on the top of the helicopter. They were sold with a remote control unit, a battery charger and a carrying case.
They were sold at Toys R Us stores nationwide and online at www.toysrus.com from September 2012 through January 2013 for about $100.
Consumers should immediately stop using the remote-controlled helicopter and return all components to a Toys R Us store for a full refund or store credit.
