Were you one that was beyond excited to get the hottest toy out there right now for Christmas? Hoverboards. Although they look extremely fun and tempting to ride all day long even in the house Amazon is asking ALL customers to literally throw them in the trash.
An email they sent to all customers who purchased these toys stated ” We regret the inconvenience this may cause you but trust you will understand that your safety and satisfaction is our highest priority”. They are stating the cause for this massive recall is due to “faulty non-compliant U.K plugs”.
Furthermore, airliners have banned them from being brought onto any plane in fear that the toy would explode midair.
What Can You Do With Your Hoverboards
If you have one of these self exploding toys check the plug they charge with. If it is clover shaped you may be in trouble. If your board features “non-compliant U.K. plugs” you should proceed immediately to a certified recycling center, and you will be refunded for your purchase within three days.
Amazon is now requiring safety documentation and proof that hoverboards have passed certain standards. You can see available Hoverboards here.
