Xootr of Old Forge, Pa., is recalling about 3,000 Xootr adult kick scooters.
The steer support can break during normal use, posing a fall hazard to the user.
The firm has received six reports of breaks in steer supports, resulting in one report of scrapes and bruises from a fall.
This recall involves all Xootr adult kick scooters with the QuickClick push-button latching mechanism.
The silver scooters are 30 inches long by 10 inches wide, and have a handlebar height of 36 inches. The Xootr logo is on the deck and lower section of the handlebar.
The scooters have a plastic, wood or metal deck, and can be identified by a black push button located on the steer support.
The scooters, manufactured in the U.S., were sold at Lajolla Swim and Sport, Nyce Wheels, San Francyclo and other sporting goods stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com and Xootr.com from November 2016, through January 2017, for about $270.
