Date:
September 28, 2011
Category:

Company/Brand:
Little Tikes, of Hudson, Ohio
The Danger:
The recalled workshop and tool sets have oversized, plastic toy nails that 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 and now more than 1.7 million additional units are being recalled. The firm has reported two additional incidents, occurring prior to the August 2009 recall, 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.
