Do you know anyone who has a Sit 'n' Scoot? The manufacturer has just issued a recall on three of the most popular designs as they have identified a safety risk.
The issue is the push-button mechanism as this has found to be a "potential finger entrapment hazard for small children". If you have one of the affected models you should return it to a Tesco* store. If you purchased from a different retailer you need to either contact them direct or contact the manufacturer via the contact details below.
Here's what the recall notice* says:
MV Sports and Leisure Ltd is recalling 3 of its Sit 'n' Scoot range on a precautionary basis as the push button mechanism which converts the 2 in 1 Sit & Scoot from a ride on to an upright scooter could pose a potential finger entrapment hazard for small children.
On the affected products there is a sticker underneath the base plate of the scooter which shows the M.V Sports & Leisure Limited name and address and a product code. The product code must match one of the three given below:
- Peppa Pig Sit 'n' Scoot - Product code: M14107
- Thomas & Friends Sit 'n' Scoot - Product code: M14109
- Disney Princess Sit 'n' Scoot - Product code: M14106
We ask that you please stop using the product immediately and return the product to your nearest Tesco store (excluding Tesco Express stores). If you have purchased any of these products as gifts, please contact the recipient and ask them to return the item to a Tesco store.
Customers who have purchased any of the above products or have any questions should contact MV Sports & Leisure Limited on 0870 8404255 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
