Fisher-Price, in cooperation with Health Canada and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, has recalled more than 11 million toys and baby products that were sold in the United States and Canada.
The company is recalling 14 models of the Fisher-Price Trike and Tough Trike toddler tricycles (approximately 7 million units in the U.S. and 150,000 in Canada), which can cause serious injury including genital bleeding when a child sits or falls on the pretend plastic ignition key. According to the CPSC, there have been 10 injuries reported.
Also recalled are seven models of infant activity centers with inflatable balls, a total of 2.8 million units in the U.S. and 125,000 in Canada. The models have been deemed a choking hazard as the valves of the inflatable balls can come off. The CPSC was notified of 46 incidents in which the valves had come off, including 14 that were found in children’s mouths.
Additionally, approximately 950,000 high chairs in the U.S. and 125,000 high chairs in Canada have been recalled, as well as the Fisher-Price Little People Wheelies Stand ‘n Play Rampway (approximately 100,000 in the U.S. and 20,000 in Canada). Children can fall on or against pegs on the back legs of the high chairs. There have been seven reports of children falling on the pegs. Also, the wheels can come off of two cars in the Rampway, posing a choking hazard to kids.
