The discount store chain has received five reports of the toy’s remote control overheating, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission. No injuries have been reported.

The toy excavator and a shovel loader have tracking code 90RWE15 marked on the back of the battery compartment. Power, Shovel Loader and Super Power are printed on stickers located on the side of the excavator. 6000Kg Peakload, FL-330 Deluxe Crane, and Crane Super Truck are printed on stickers located on the side of the shovel loader.

The toys were sold exclusively by Dollar General from July 2015 through December 2015 for about $10.

Consumers should take the toys away from children and contact Dollar General for a full refund.
