Fisher-Price toy recall in Canada and the U.S.

More than 10 million trikes, toys and high chairs recalled after injuries reported

After injuries ranging from cuts to genital bleeding, Fisher-Price is recalling more than 10 million tricycles, toys and high chairs over safety concerns. Officials said about 420,000 of the items were sold in Canada.
So-called dangerous toys include: Fisher-Price Trikes and Tough Trikes toddler tricycles, Healthy Care, Easy Clean and Close to Me High Chairs, Baby Playzone Crawl & Cruise Playground toys, Baby Playzone Crawl & Slide Arcade toys, Baby Gymtastics Play Wall toys, and Little People Wheelies Stand & Play Rampway toys. CPSC Chairman Inez Tenenbaum said manufacturers need to do more to build safety into their products before they reach consumers. But she also praised Fisher-Price for “taking the right steps by agreeing to these recalls and offering consumers free repairs or replacement.”
