Today the CPSC added another 78,000 Remote Controlled Helicopters to the 2008 toy recall list making the total remote controlled helicopters recalled for 2008 over 1 MILLION!
Today the Protocol Remote Controlled Mini Helicopter made in China was recalled due to reports of the rechargeable battery overheating and causing the helicopter to melt. The reports included one consumer whose fingertip was burned in the overheating.
These helicopters were sold in retail stores nationwide from October to December 2007.
I don't know about you but my son will NOT be receiving a remote controlled helicopter for Christmas!
