Fisher Price recalls Power Wheels Barbie vehicle; 122,000 DeWalt drills recalled for shock danger

SAN ANTONIO – Parents may want to put the brakes on some hot pink Barbie vehicles after Fisher Price recalled 44,000 of them.

The recall involves children’s Power Wheels Barbie Dream Campers. The model number is FRC29.

Fisher Price has received 17 reports of the battery-operated Power Wheels continuing to run even after the foot pedal has been released.

The vehicles have been sold at Walmart and Walmart.com since July.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says parents should take the toys away from the kids and contact Fisher Price for a free repair.
