Recall Alert: Fisher Price Tricycles, High Chairs and More
September 30, 2010
There was a massive Fisher-Price recall today. The CPSC and Fisher-Price announced a recall of more than 11 million Fisher-Price items, including tricycles, high chairs and infant toys with inflatable balls. Here’s the breakdown:
The brand’s tricycles are being recalled due to the risk of serious injury including genital bleeding a child if a child collides with the protruding plastic part on the seat. The trikes have been sold from 1997 through 2010, so if you own a Fisher Price tricycle, it’s been recalled. If you own one, stop using it immediately and contact Fisher-Price at (800) 432-5437 for a free replacement key.
Fisher-Price high chairs are being recalled because children can fall against the pegs on the back of the high chair and get injured. The high chairs were sold from 2001 to 2010, so again there’s a good chance if you own a Fisher-Price high chair, you’ll have to stop using it immediately. You can contact Fisher-Price at (800) 432-5437 to receive a free repair kit.
The Fisher-Price Little Wheelies Stand ‘N Play is being recalled because the wheels on two of the cars can come off posing a choking hazard to children. If you own this set, remove the purple and green cars so your child cannot play with them. Contact Fisher-Price at (800) 432-5437 for replacement cars.
6 different Fisher-Price baby toys with inflatable balls are being recalled because the balls can become detached and pose a choking risk to children. Here are the toys affected by the recall: Baby Playzone Crawl & Cruise Playground, Baby Playzone Crawl & Slide Arcade, Baby Gymtastics Play Wall, Ocean Wonders Kick & Crawl Aquarium, 1-2-3 Tetherball, Bat & Score Goal. If you own any of these toys, remove the inflatable balls and keep them away from your child. You can also contact Fisher-Price at (800) 432-5437 to receive a free replacement kit.
