Recalls issued for 7 toy hoverboard models

Hoverboards are once again the target for recalls, as the Consumer Product Safety Commission issued recalls Tuesday on seven models for potential fire hazard. 

According to the CPSC, the seven recalled hoverboard models have lithium-ion battery packs that can overheat, posing a risk of smoking, catching fire and/or exploding.

Nearly 13,000 units are covered by Tuesday's recall. The most popular model was the iLive Self-Balancing Hoverboard, which sold for between $170 and $200 at various Ace Hardware and hh gregg stores nationwide, Heartland America catalogs and online at AceHardware.com and hhgregg.com.

The CPSC recommends consumers immediately stop using the recalled hoverboards and contact the manufacture receive a full refund or store credit.
