Fisher-Price has announced a voluntary recall of 7 million toddler tricycles in the United States because of safety concerns.
Trikes and Tough Trikes for 2- to 5-year-olds pose a hazard to children. A plastic ignition key could injure a child who accidentally sits or falls on it. Genital bleeding and other serious injury could occur.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Fisher-Price have confirmed 10 reports of injuries. In 6 of the incidents, 2- to 3-year-old girls needed medical attention after they fell and struck the protruding ignition key.
The tricycles involved in the Fisher-Price recall have been sold at retailers nationwide for around $25 from January 1997 to September 2010. The pretend ignition key is either disc-shaped or shaped like a D. You can look under the storage compartment seat to find the model number.
The model numbers of the Fisher-Price recalled seats include:
This Fisher-Price recall does not include Trikes that were manufactured since June 16, 2010. Children should immediately stop using the recalled Trikes. Consumers are advised to contact Fisher-Price at 800-432-5437 to get a free replacement key.
