Choking Incidents Lead to Massive Little Tikes Toy Tool Set Recall

By Mike Holter

 

Little Tikes Play Tool Set Recall(LEGAFI) -- The Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced a recall of 1.7 million Little Tikes toy tool sets, citing a choking hazard from the oversized toy nails. The company issued a similar toy recall in 2009 after an 11-month-old boy choked when one of the nails become forcefully lodged in his throat.
 
The expanded Little Tikes Workshop and Tool Set recall was issued after Little Tikes, a unit of MGA Entertainment, reported two more choking incidents that took place prior to the 2009 recall, which involved about 1.6 million units. Both children were hospitalized after the oversized toy nail contained in the play tool sets became lodged in their throats. Both children were treated and recovered fully.
 
The toy nails involved in the Little Tikes tool set recall are about 3-1/4 inches (8 cm) long by 1-1/4 inch (3 cm) in diameter. They are red or blue and have a large round head, and below the nail head there is a plastic ridge, slightly smaller than the nail head and bout an inch in diameter.
 
The Little Tikes recall involves toy tool sets sold nationwide from 1990 through 2004 for between $25 and $100. Pictures and model numbers of the recalled toy tool sets can be found in the CPSC recall announcement. 
 
Consumers are asked to immediately take the toy nails away from young children and contact Little Tikes for free replacement toy nails.
