CPSC Announces Expansion of Recall of Little Tikes Toy for Choking Danger

By Grant Law Office on October 14, 2011

As any parent or guardian knows, children have a tendency to put almost anything in their mouths. That’s why it’s critically important that household items that present choking or ingestion hazards be kept well out of children’s reach. Unfortunately, even the items which are designed for child use must be very carefully monitored. Toy companies are subject to government safety standards, but when a manufacturing error slips through the cracks, it is up to the consumer (in this case an adult guardian) to identify the danger and report it, hopefully before a Georgia child injury occurs. Unfortunately, the full effect of a dangerous product recall often takes time to unfold.

The kids toy giant Little Tikes, from Hudson, Ohio, recently increased a recall of their Workshop and Tool Sets that was initially started in August 2009, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). Over 1.7 million total products have been recalled to this point. The product was sold at many large retailers across the country from 1990 to 2004 and was made in the United States and China. The cause of the recall was toy nail components that were too large in size, thus posing a choking danger to kids. Parents and guardians are instructed to immediately take the faulty toys away from children and contact the company for replacement or refund information.

The CPSC has reported a number of accidents, which happened before the first recall, where a toy nail became stuck in a child’s throat. Luckily, the children who have been injured by the product were treated in a hospital and made a full recovery, stated the CPSC.
