Fisher Price recalls more than 11 million products

Consumer Reports News: September 30, 2010 10:04 AM

Fisher Price seems to be doing all its housekeeping in one day. As well as the million-plus high chairs pulled from the market, the Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada announced today that the company is recalling more than 7.2 million trikes, almost 3 million infant toys with inflatable balls, and 100,000 Little People Wheelies.

The trikes are a hazard because the pretend key that sticks up can cause serious injury if a child falls on it. The company has 10 reports of injuries, including six that required medical attention.

The infant activity centers have valves on the inflatable balls that can come off. Fisher-Price knows of 46 valves that have come off, 14 were found in children’s mouths, and three reports of a child beginning to choke. And the green and purple cars from the Fisher Price Little People Wheelies Stand ‘n Play Rampway have wheels that can come off. No injuries have been reported.
