The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada, in cooperation with Green Toys, Inc., have announced a voluntary recall of Green Toys Mini Vehicles. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.
The vehicles have been recalled because the wheels and hubcaps on the toy cars can detach, posing a choking hazard to young children. Consumers who own the following mini vehicles, manufactured between March and June of this year, should contact Green Toys for a full refund: Mini Vehicle Set, Mini Ambulance, Mini Vehicle Assortment, Mini Red Fastback, Mini Police Car, Mini Taxi, and Mini Fastback Set. Cars with an “I” etched into the underside of the car next to the date stamp are not part of the recall.
For additional information, contact Green Toys toll-free at (888) 973-3421 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday or visit the firm’s website at www.greentoys.com/recall.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is still interested in receiving incident or injury reports that are either directly related to this product recall or involve a different hazard with the same product. Tell them about your experience with the product on SaferProducts.gov.
