Fisher-Price Recalls Toddler Tricycles for Safety Concerns


Posted on Oct 13, 2010

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:
 

  • J72633 Hot Wheels Trike;
  • 72639 Barbie Free Spirit Trike;
  • 72642 Lil' Kawasaki Trike;
  • 72643 Boys Tough Trike;
  • 72644 Girls Tough Trike;
  • 72792 Kawasaki Trike;
  • B8775 Kawasaki Tough Trike;
  • B8776 Barbie Tough Trike;
  • K6672 Dora the Explorer Tough Trike;
  • K6673 Diego Tough Trike;
  • M5727 Barbie Tough Trike Princess Ride-On;
  • N6021 Kawasaki Tough Trike;
  • T6209 Thomas Tough Trike; and
  • V4270 Diego Tough Trike. 


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.
