Little Tikes is recalling another than 1.7 million of its Little Tikes Workshop and Tool Sets — durable toys that haven’t been sold in seven years — over concerns that the included plastic toy nails are choking hazards for small children, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said today.
About 1.6 million of the sets were recalled in 2009 following reports that a toddler had been hospitalized after a nail lodged in his throat. Since then, the CPSC said Little Tikes learned of two more incidents.
In addition to all the products included in the original recall, another 11 sets are now being recalled. The nails in question are a bit more than 3 inches long and are either blue or red.
If you have any of the nails, the CPSC urges you to take them away from children and contact Little Tikes to get replacement nails. Little Tikes can be reached at (800) 321-0183 weekdays between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. Eastern Time or through their website.
