Educational Construction Series Product Recall
Affected products produced between January 1, 2007 to September 16, 2010 are listed below.
Thank you very much for your constant support of Tamiya's products.
We have discovered that a number of Educational Construction Series products (see list below) have been shipped with problematic circuit boards. When batteries are installed, these defective circuit boards may overheat, leading to the product becoming inoperable.
Although there haven't been any reports of injuries, Tamiya has thus decided to conduct a voluntary recall of these products. If you are a distributor or retailer in North America, please contact your Tamiya America, Inc. Sales Representative. You will be issued a UPS call tag to return your product(s).
If you are a consumer that has already purchased the product(s) listed below you should contact the Tamiya America, Inc. directly through the Customer Service Department to receive your UPS call tag. If you have already assembled your purchased product please return it, as is, for inspection. Your product will be returned to you after a quality control inspection.
We appreciate your cooperation and sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
