Posted on behalf of Phillips Law Group on Oct 01, 2010 in Class Action Lawsuits
Children's toys are an enormous market that's supported by consumers, and it generates billions of dollars every year for the leading companies who manufacture these products. One of these leading companies is Fisher Price, which is known around the world for its plethora of play-time choices for children. Unfortunately, several dangers have been spotted with a massive number of these products, and Fisher Price has initiated a recall of 10 million toys. Anyone who has been harmed by these or any other products should contact an Arizona defective products attorney immediately, and below is a brief overview of this troubling issue.
Fisher Price Recall Injuries and Lawsuits
The Fisher Price recall has been initiated because several different toys and other children's products have been found to be extremely dangerous. Specifically, many of the units that are subject to this recall are being pulled from shelves because they have sharp and protruding edges that can lead to serious injuries if someone falls on them and because of small parts present on other toys that can be detached from the toys and swallowed. There have already been several reports of children that nearly choked on these small, detachable parts.
Toys Affected by the Fisher Price Recall
Below you'll find a list of the toys and products affected by the Fisher Price recall:
- 7 million Fisher Price Trikes and Tough Trikes toddler tricycles

- 2.8 million Baby Playzone Crawl & Cruise Playground, Baby Playzone Crawl & Slide Arcade, Baby Gymnastics Play Wall, Ocean Wonders Kick & Crawl Aquarium (C3068 and H8094), 1-2-3 Tetherball, Bat & Score Goal
Fisher Price and the federal government are working together to get the word out regarding these dangers. Consumers who have any of these products in their homes are advised to stop using them immediately and to contact the company for a full refund.
