Runaway recall: Barbie Dream Campers keep going even when pedal released

Beware of runaway kid-size Barbie cars.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced that Fisher-Price is recalling Power Wheels Barbie Dream Campers after they learned the cars do not stop when you take your foot of the pedal.

Already 17 people have reported the problem, but fortunately no one has been injured.

Fisher-Price asks families to keep these toys away from children and to contact the company for a free repair.

The company is recalling about 44,000 campers matching the following description:

  • Model number FRC29 printed on label under hood
  • Gray foot pedal
  • Hot pink camper with blue accents
  • Barbie logo printed on the back

The campers were sold at Walmarts across the country and online at Walmart.com from July 2018 to January 2019 for about $400.
