A toy tank sold at Family Dollar is among this week’s recalled toys. See the Safety Pins blog for more updates in kid safety, including past recalls.

About 67,000 remote-controlled toy tanks sold at Family Dollar have been recalled because the tank’s controller can overheat and melt, possibility burning kids.

Incidents/Injuries: Family Dollar has received five reports of the controllers overheating and melting. No injuries have been reported.

Details: This recalled product is the Authentic Heroes Target Practice Tank play set, a remote-controlled green toy tank attached by a cable to a grey battery-powered controller.
