The Consumer Product Safety Commission has issued an ‘urgent warning’ about the Lay-Z-Board hoverboards, telling consumers to stop riding and charging them immediately.
In March, a Lay-Z Board burst into flames while plugged into an electrical outlet inside a Pennsylvania home.
The fire killed two children, and was the first fire directly related to an exploding hoverboard.
More than 100 other non-fatal incidents related to hoverboards manufactured by a variety of companies are being investigated.
No recall for Lay-Z Boards has been issued, because the company, based in China, is reportedly refusing to cooperate.
