Fisher Price Major Recalls


Fisher-Price is recalling more than 10 million tricycles, toys and high chairs over safety concerns.

In the recall of about seven million Fisher-Price Trikes and Tough Trikes toddler tricycles, the agency is aware of 10 reports of children being hurt. Six required medical attention.

The trikes some featuring popular characters such as Dora the Explorer and Barbie have a protruding plastic ignition key near the seat that children can strike, sit on or fall on, leading to injuries that the commission said can include genital bleeding.

Fisher-Price is also recalling more than one million Healthy Care, Easy Clean and Close to Me High Chairs, after 14 reports of problems. Seven children needed stitches, the commission said.

The pegs on the back of the high chairs can be used to store the tray, but children can fall on them, resulting in cuts and other injuries.
