Fisher-Price is recalling about 155,000 Laugh & Learn Kitchen Toys because pieces of the faucet and clock hands can detach and pose a choking hazard, reports the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
“There have been 48 reports of small parts separating from the toys, including two reports of children gagging on pieces, one report of a child who started choking on a piece and one report of a child who choked on a piece,” writes the CPSC.
The Mexican-made toys were sold from May 2007 through October 2007 at retail and specialty toy stores.
31,000 Skippy Pool Toys are being recalled because the elastic tongue of the fish can break and can cut customers’ hands. Of 24 reports of the toy breaking, five children were injured. One victim needed stitches and the other had a fingernail ripped off.
The Chinese-made toys were sold from February 2007 through September 2007 at mass merchandisers and pool supply stores nationwide.
