Richmond, Va. (WRIC) — About 3,000 Peg Perego riding toy vehicles are under a recall because a relay on the circuit board can fail, which causes the vehicle’s motor to overheat and ignite.

There have been three reports of the vehicles overheating and one report of a burn.

The toy vehicles were sold at several online retailers, including Amazon.com and Target.com.

If you have one of these vehicles, stop your child from using it, and contact Peg Perego for a free replacement part.
