Smyths Toy Ireland are recalling a car racing game for children because the electric charger might be dangerous and could injure someone.

A message on their website reads: “Smyths Toys has been made aware of several incidents regarding the plug/charger on this toy.

“No injuries have been reported. The product was sold in the United Kingdom, Republic Of Ireland and Northern Ireland.

“Batch placed on the market from the 7th August 2017. The affected batch number is 1706.
