Fisher-Price (Mattel) and the United States Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) have issued a voluntary recall on the Power Wheels Barbie Dream Camper, model number FRC29 with a grey foot pedal. The toys were sold exclusively at Walmart stores in the U.S. from July 2018 through January 2019 for around $400.

Owners of the Power Wheels Barbie Dream Camper can find the model number on a sticker located under the hood.
