A Chinese firm is recalling certain units of its 'Xiaomi Mi Electric Scooter' over a safety issue.

It says it is possible that on certain units, a screw in the folding apparatus has the potential to come loose - causing the steering column to break away from the main body while in use.

"This presents the possibility of injury to users in terms of falls/slips/trips resulting from the failure", the Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (CCPC) says.

The Model Number of the affected units is M365.

These products were sold in the Republic of Ireland by Three Ireland.

It is thought approximately 197 units of this scooter have been sold on the Irish market.

Consumers who have purchased it should enter the serial number on the Xiaomi website.

The location of the serial number is on the side of the scooter.

If a scooter is part of the product safety recall program, users will receive a prompt asking for an e-mail address.

Within 72 hours, they will receive additional information regarding repairing the scooter for free.

Xiaomi is encouraging scooter owners to immediately stop using the Xiaomi Mi Electric Scooter (M365) until they have determined whether their scooter is affected by this recall.

Those with further queries or concerns can e-mail service.global@xiaomi.com.

Alternatively, customers can contact SBE - carrying out repairs on behalf of Xiaomi in Ireland - on 01-401-8193.
