Fisher-Price announced a voluntary recall of 7 million Trikes and Tough Trikes toddler tricycles this morning, after receiving 10 reports of injury, six serious, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission. In each case, little girls aged two to three years old fell against the protruding disc-shaped or D-shaped pretend ignition key.
They have also recalled seven models of infant activity centers with inflatable balls in which the valve from the balls comes off, 950,000 Fisher-Price high chairs, and two cars in the Fisher-Price Little People Wheelies Stand ‘n Play Rampway.
Fisher-Price has issued several recalls over the past decade, but most only affected 100,000 to 500,000 toys, whereas this recall will affect 10.9 million.
The 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.
The tricycles are intended for children 2 to 5 years of age, and have pretend keys located about 3 inches in front of the seat (see photograph). They were sold nationwide from January 1997 through September 2010, for about $25 each.
