The Step2 Company has recalled approximately 15,500 Children's Riding Toys. Children using the toy who lean too far forward on the seat can fall over the handle bars and hit the ground, possibly sustaining injuries.

The company is aware of four reports of incidents, with one incident resulting in head bumps and one resulting in a minor concussion and cuts to the gum and lip from the child's front teeth.

The recalled product is an X-Rider Car. It is a red, plastic toy scooter with a yellow handlebar and seat, and two blue stickers that simulate headlights. The middle of the handle bar contains the Step2 logo. Children use their feet to propel the toy.

The recalled riding toys were sold at Target and other retailers from January 2012 through August 2012.

Consumers should immediately take the recalled toy away from children and contact Step2 to receive a free replacement toy.
