Razor Recalls Scooters, Dirt Quads

About 103,000 Chinese-made Razor scooters are being recalled.

The move comes after four people have received cuts on the scooters that required tendon surgery.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says some of the company's PowerWing three-wheeled scooters have sharp edges on the bottom of the platforms where riders place their feet.

The importer of the scooters, Razor USA, has received 10 reports of the platform cutting users on the ankle or the Achilles tendon. Four of them needed tendon surgery and three needed stitches.

Razor has also recalled about 30,000 Chinese-made Dirt Quad electric-powered, ride-on vehicles because the throttle controls can fail and cause the vehicles to surge forward unexpectedly. Two people are reported to have been hurt on the vehicles.

    Just another reason to pull the manufacturing jobs out of China and back to the United States. China just doesn't have high enough standards for manufacturing and that's why they can build things cheaper than the United States. It wasn't long ago China was using lead-based paint in their products and just recently all of their milk products have been tainted. When are the companys in America going to wake up and realize that just because they can get things from China cheaper that they are also getting sub-standard finished products. Oh....they are greedy because they can charge the same price to consumers that they would have, had those products been manufactured here in the United States. Pull the work back to the United States where it belongs, put people back to work and help the economy get back to normal.
