Walmart Pulse Scooter Recall Issued Over Fall Hazard
Nearly 20,000 Pulse scooters sold by Walmart and Westminster Trading have been recalled, following more than a dozen consumer reports that suggest the down tube of the device may break while in use, posing a risk that children may fall and suffer potentially serious injuries.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced the Pulse Krusher Pro scooter recall on May 19, following at least 15 reports involving problems where the main support bar below the handles cracked while children were riding the devices, resulting at least two reports of falls, scrapes and other problems.
The CPSC is urging consumers to stop using the scooters immediately to prevent further injury. In the event the down tube cracks during use, a child or user may fall forward onto the broken tube, posing a laceration and penetration injury risk.

The recall includes certain Krusher Push scooters that measure 30-inches in height and were sold in blue and have the brand name “Pulse Performance Products” printed on the down tube. The recalled scooters are marked with the factory code 083WY and item number 164257, and have the date code of 10-8-2016 or earlier printed on a label under the scooter deck.
According to the scooter recall, an estimated 18,700 units were distributed for sale throughout the United States.
The scooters were manufactured in China by Pulse Performance Products, a division of Bravo Sports, of Sante Fe Springs, California. They were sold at Walmart and Westminster Trading stores nationwide and online at Walmart.com from June 2016 through May 2017 for around $40.00.
The CPSC recommends that customers stop using the recalled scooters and contact Pulse Performance toll-free at 844-728-9957 or visit them online at www.pulsescooters.com and navigate to the “CPSC Safety Recall” link for information on how to receive a full refund.

On scooter "halo" my 5 year old was riding today and foot got jammed inside brake and rear wheel making a deep bent like on base of toe nail brusing toe all around. We're thinking a recall on this would be appropriate due to the sharp narrow edges on rear brake, maybe making brake hard plastic or etc. Would be safer for kids in that age range just a concerned parent. Thank you
