Toys R Us is recalling a remote-controlled helicopter because it can overheat and cause burns or even start a fire, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The recall covers the Fast Lane FA-005 Radio Control 3-Channel Helicopter with Gyro Stabilizer and Charger, model number 5F5F2F5.

About 6,500 of these helicopters were sold at Toys R Us stores nationwide and online from September 2012 through January 2013.

There have been 11 reports of the rechargeable battery overheating, but no injuries have been reported, according to the CPSC.

People who purchased this helicopter are urged to stop using it immediately and return it to a Toys R Us store for a refund.

For more information, call Toys R Us at (800) 869-7787.
