The last week of September, The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Little Tikes, of Hudson, Ohio., recalled 1.7 million additional units (about 1.6 million toy workshop sets and trucks with the same toy nails were recalled in August 2009) of Little Tikes® Workshop and Tool Sets.
The recalled workshop and tool sets have over sized, plastic toy nails that can pose a choking hazard to young children. The firm has reported two additional incidents, occurring prior to the August 2009 recall, of children who choked when the toy nail became lodged in their throat. Both children were treated in a hospital and made a full recovery.
This recall involves the toy nails sold as part of 11 additional models of Little Tikes® Workshop and tool sets listed below. The toy nails are over sized, plastic, and about 3 1/4 inches long by 1 1/4 inch in diameter. The nails are either red or blue and have a large round head; below the nail head there is a plastic ridge, slightly smaller than the nail head and about 1 inch in diameter. The model number may be found on some of the products.Mass merchandise retailers nationwide from 1990 through 2004 for between $25 and $100. The products were made in United States and China.
Consumers should immediately take the toy nails away from young children and contact the firm for free replacement toy nails. Little Tikes cn be contacted at (800) 321-0183 or visit the firm’s website at www.littletikes.com.
