Fisher-Price Recalls 11 Million Toys, High Chairs

7 Million Trikes Pose Genital Injury Hazard; Different Risks in Other Toys
WebMD Health News
Reviewed by Louise Chang, MD

Sept. 30, 2010 - Fisher-Price has recalled more than 11 million toys for various reasons, including 7 million tricycles with a protruding key that has caused genital injuries to young girls.

There have been 10 reports of injuries from the tricycles, including six incidents requiring medical attention after 2- and 3-year-old girls fell on the disc- or D-shaped keys. Some of these injuries resulted in genital bleeding.

At the same time, Fisher-Price is announcing recalls of several other toys with parts that pose a choking hazard and recalls of high chairs with pegs on the rear legs that have cut or otherwise injured children.

Details on each of the recalls are below.

Fisher-Price Trike Recall

The recall involves some 7 million tricycles in the U.S. and 150,000 in Canada.

The problem is a "pretend key" about 3 inches in front of the seat that protrudes at least 5/8 inch above the trike body. Trikes made after June 16, 2010, have a safer, flattened key that does not protrude as far.

Trikes included in the recall carry a "run number" under the seat below the model number. The trikes NOT included in the recall have a run number higher than 1670Q2, which stands for the 167th day of 2010 or June 16, 2010.

The trikes included in the recall were sold nationwide from January 1997 through September 2010.

The recalled tricycles are:

  • Hot Wheels Trike (model J72633)
  • Barbie Free Spirit Trike (model 72639)
  • Lil' Kawasaki Trike (model 72642)
  • Boys Tough Trike (model 72643)
  • Girls Tough Trike (model 72644)
  • Kawasaki Trike (model 72792)
  • Kawasaki Tough Trike (models B8775 and N6021)
  • Barbie Tough Trike (model B8776)
  • Dora the Explorer Tough Trike (model K6672)
  • Diego Tough Trike (K6673)
  • Barbie Tough Trike Princess Ride-On (model M5727)
  • Thomas Tough Trike (model T6209)
  • Diego Tough Trike (V4270)

These tricycles should be kept away from children. Parents should contact Fisher-Price to obtain a free replacement key.

Fisher-Price Recalls Infant Toys With Inflatable Balls

Some 2.8 million Fisher-Price infant toys sold in the U.S. and 125,000 sold in Canada feature inflatable balls with a valve that can come off and choke children.
