BETHESDA, Md., (WUSA) -- The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has recalled 65,000 of the Authentic Heroes Target Practice Tank play sets.

The green remote controlled toy tanks were sold exclusively at Family Dollar Stores nationwide.  It's attached by a cable to a grey-battery-powered controller.

The tank's controller overheats and melts which poses a burn hazard.
