Fisher-Price Tricycle Recall

Fisher-Price issued a massive recall of 7 million Trikes and Tough Trikes toddler tricycles after receiving ten reports of injuries, six of which were considered serious by the Consumer Product Safety Commission. In all of the cases of injury, little girls aged two to three years old fell against the protruding disc-shaped or D-shaped pretend ignition key. Consumers should take the key out of these tricycles and get a replacement key from Fisher-Price. You can go to their recall website which shows, ah, a lot of recalls. Actually, it is easy to jab at the number of Fisher-Price recalls but is a good service to keep the old recalls posted because people use and pass down kids toys.

This tricycle recall involves the fourteen Fisher-Price Trikes and Tough Trikes toddler tricycles with model numbers listed below. The model numbers are located under the seat in the storage compartment.

Tricycles manufactured after June 16, 2010 are not included in this recall, as their pretend keys were flattened to the body of the tricycle. Those tricycles have a manufacturer run number higher than 1670Q2. This is a little disconcerting, right? Because it means at some point they knew well enough to make the change but not to recall the tricycles. That is at least three months of being aware of the problem but not issuing a recall.
