September 20, 2012 — The California-based toy company Green Toy, Inc., the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC), and Health Canada are announcing a coordinated, voluntary recall of Mini Vehicles. The products are designed with small, plastic wheels and hubcaps that can loosen and detach. Young children could potentially choke on the pieces. No injuries have been linked to the toys, although Green Toys has received 10 reports that small pieces of the toys detached or loosened.
Customers who purchased the products should check to see whether their toy is part of the recall. Seven different products are being recalled:
- MVHA-1014 – Mini Vehicle Set
- MAMW-1015 – Mini Ambulance
- MVSA-1016 – Mini Vehicle Assortment
- MFBR-1018 – Mini Red Fastback
- MPCB-1020 – Mini Police Car
- MTXY-1021 – Mini Taxi
- MVFA-1022 – Mini Fastback Set
The model number is located on the bottom of the toy packaging, and also imprinted on the bottom of the toy itself. Toys marked with an “I” next to the date are not being recalled.
Green Toys manufactures the vehicles in California from plastic recycled from milk jugs. Approximately 50,000 have been sold in the U.S., and another 2,500 sold in Canada. They come in several different colors. They were sold in retail stores from March 2012 until June 2012.
Customers should not allow children to play with the toys. Green Toys can be contacted for a full refund.
