Fisher-Price has announced a recall of its Power Wheels Barbie Dream Camper for children. The gray foot pedal has been reported to continue running after being released, posing an injury hazard to the child driving it.
Though no injuries have been reported, the company has received 17 reports of the foot pedal issue so far. Though the Power Wheels vehicles run at very low speeds, the potential for major injury is still possible.
Roughly 44,000 campers with model number FRC29 are subjected to the recall. The model number can be found on a printed label under the hood.
The hot pink and blue accented children’s vehicle has the Barbie logo printed on the back. They have a play kitchen, a fold-out grill and a pretend campfire. It has two interchangeable forward-moving speeds of 2.5 and 5 mph, while the reverse speed only goes up to 1 mph.

The campers were sold in Walmart stores nationwide and online from July 2018 to January 2019 for $400. Fisher-Price is offering a free repair to remedy the issue.
