CPSC issues recall of hoverboards sold by Evine

UNDATED (WDAM) – If you purchased a hoverboard on Evine's TV show or on its website, it may be under recall.

Nearly 2000 Orbit brand self-balancing scooters are being recalled, the CPSC said.

The lithium-ion battery packs inside can overheat, leaving the hoverboards at risk of smoking, catching fire or  exploding.

No incidents or injuries have been reported.  But consumers should stop using the product and contact World Trading to exchange it for a free UL-certified replacement hoverboard. Evine sold the hoverboards in December of 2015.

World Trading can be reached at support@worldtrading23.com or, toll free, 1-877-498-8697.
