Jetson Rogue hoverboard recalled after fire kills two children

A Pennsylvania fire marshal has determined that a Jetson Rogue was the origin point of a fire that killed two children, the CPSC notice says. The children’s parents are suing Jetson and Target, where they say they purchased the hoverboard, alleging both companies should have known about the risk of fire-related injuries due to the Jetson Rogue’s design. (The parents initially sued Walmart, but amended their lawsuit to sue Target.)

The CPSC also states that “there have been several other reports of recalled scooters/hoverboards burning, sparking, or melting, several of which involved reports of flames.” The CPSC and Jetson are urging customers to stop using and recharging their Jetson Rogues and to contact Jetson for a refund.

The Rogue recall affects approximately 53,000 units for hoverboards sold by Target from August 2018 through June 2019 and on Jetson’s website from January 2019 through November 2021. If you have an affected unit, you can contact Jetson via the instructions at advice from CPSC or on Jetson. website, which includes images that may help you identify if you have one of the recalled models.

Other Jetson hoverboard models are not part of the recall and are still for sale.
