URBAN626 has issued a recall of roughly 1,200 electric scoots because a bolt below the seat may crack, posing a fall hazard.

This recall involves all models of the URB-E electric scooter. The foldable electric scooters are aluminum and carbon fiber. They have two wheels and come in black, gray, or white.

The scooters were sold at URBAN626 stores in Pasadena, CA, and online from August 2015 through June 2016 for between $1,500 and $2,000.

The company has received three reports of incidents, one resulting in a scraped knee.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled units and contact URBAN626 for a free repair kit. URBAN626 will reimburse consumers if they choose to have a bike repair shop replace the bolt.

For more information, consumers may contact the company at (888) 270-6988.
