The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is ordering massive recalls for the ever-popular hoverboards.
The hoverboards are fire hazards and pose risks to consumers' safety, according to the CPSC recall. More than 500,000 hoverboards are affected. CPSC's chairman spoke exclusively to ABC about the recall.
"This is a huge recall. It's the recall I think we've all been waiting for to address this product that as soon as it came on the market presented a pretty significant fire hazard," CPSC Chairman Elliot Kaye told ABC.
