Razor USA has recalled 20,000 E300 electric scooters over concerns the handlebars can break off, according to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The recall applies to the blue or silver scooters sold over the internet and in Pep Boys stores between January and October, 2006 with barcodes beginning with 100620-03 through to -09.

The CPSC says the California-based importer has received at least 25 reports of welds breaking on the handlebar of the Chinese-made, battery-powered scooter, including three reports of injuries.

This follows a similar incident in 2005 when 246,000 electric scooters were recalled for a similar problem.

Consumers are asked to stop using the scooters immediately and to contact Razor USA for a free repair kit.
