MASSIVE FISHER PRICE RECALL!!

Massive Fisher Price Recall:

By LEE FERRAN
Sept. 30, 2010

More than 10 million children's toys are being recalled by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the toys' manufacturer Fisher Price, the CPSC announced today.

The toy giant is recalling toys -- from tricycles to playplaces -- citing potential dangers from falling onto certain protruding parts and choking hazards from small parts.

"Consumer should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed," the CPSC said in a statement.

Here's the list of products being recalled in the U.S.:

About 7 million Fisher Price Trikes and Tough Trikes toddler tricycles

About 950,000 Healthy Care, Easy Clean and Close to Me High Chairs

About 100,000 Fisher-Price Little People Wheelies Stand 'n Play Rampway

About 2.8 million Baby Playzone™ Crawl & Cruise Playground™, Baby Playzone™ Crawl & Slide Arcade™ , Baby Gymtastics™ Play Wall, Ocean Wonders™ Kick & Crawl™ Aquarium (C3068 and H8094), 1-2-3 Tetherball™, Bat & Score Goal™


"Pegs stick out and children have fallen on these pegs," Inez Tanenbaum, chair of the CSPC told "Good Morning America" of the high chairs. "Several have been injured, and seven required stitches."

For the various play place products, including Playzone and Playground, the CPSC and Fisher Price reported they were aware of 46 instances when a small piece came free from the product. In 14 of those cases, the piece was found in the child's mouth. In three of those cases, the piece had caused the child to begin choking. Wheels from other small toy cars can come off and also prevent a choking hazard.

"Manufacturers need to build safety into the product from the very beginning so we don't have to recall on the back end," Tenenbaum said.

The products are also being recalled in Canada in smaller numbers. Fisher Price did not immediately reply to requests for comment on this story.

CLICK HERE to learn more about the recall from the CPSC website or call the CSPC Recall Hotline at (800) 638-2772.

The agency urged consumers to stop using the toys immediately and contact Fisher-Price at 1-800-432-5437 for repair kits or replacements.

i have the rainforest highchair.

the repair kit is on backorder until Nov 12th and they advise not using the highchair until the repair kit is received. Apparently the issue with the chair i have is that there are little pegs on the back to hang the tray when not in use - kids have gotten their fingers cut or tripped, etc. It's not a matter of the chair collapsing with kids in it or anything like that.

Do you have the Chicco Polly? That's what we have and I think it has similar pegs on the back...
