Vehicle recalls aren't just for the auto industry.
A Texas company is recalling nearly 287,000 radio-controlled toy trucks. The problem? Overheating circuit boards that could pose a fire hazard.
The recall by Nikko America of Plano, Texas involves several models of its 18-inch toy trucks manufactured between April 2003 and January 2004.
They were sold at major toy and discount department stores nationally between July 2003 and February 2004 for about $60.
The recall includes the Chevy Avalanche (model 100021A), the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon (model 100022A and 100022B), the Hummer Wagon (model 100023A and 100023B) and the Ford F150 (model 100024A and 100024B). The model numbers and names can be found on the body of the truck
