Original Little Tikes Toy Workshop & Tool Sets Recall Has Been Expanded Due To Choking Hazard
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has recalled over 1.7 million additional Little Tikes® Workshop and Tool Sets as the oversized, plastic toy nails can pose a choking hazard to young children. About 1.6 million toy workshop sets and trucks with the same toy nails were recalled in August 2009, when two incidents were reported of children who choked when the toy nail became lodged in their throat. Both children were treated in a hospital and made a full recovery.
This particular recall involves the toy nails sold as part of 11 additional models of Little Tikes® Workshop and tool sets listed below. The toy nails are oversized, plastic, and about 3 1/4 inches long by 1 1/4 inch in diameter. The nails are either red or blue and have a large round head; below the nail head there is a plastic ridge, slightly smaller than the nail head and about 1 inch in diameter. The model number may be found on some of the products.
