Children’s toy vehicles are being recalled because they could cut children, if they fall, according to news reports .
Fisher-Price announced it is recalling its Little People® Builders’ Load’n Go Wagons because children could be injured if they fall on the handle of the toy vehicle. The handle has molded-in reinforcement, which makes the handle stiffer and easier to grip.
The toy included in the recall is:
- Model number P8977, which is a red wagon with a yellow handle, multi-colored plastic blocks and a dog figure. “Little People® Builders” is found on a label on the side of the wagon and “Fisher Price” is embossed on the handle.
Wagons with green handles are not part of this recall, according to news reports.
Seven incidents have occurred in the U.S., including five reports of youngsters receiving cuts that needed stitches or surgical glue, according to news reports.
As a personal injury attorney Charleston , I urge parents to be sure their children stop using this product to protect themselves from potentially serious injuries. Contact Fisher-Price to receive a free repair kit. The company can be reached at 1-800-432-5437 or at its website.
While we don’t handle this kind of recall we feel that it’s important to educate the community to help protect their health and safety. If you have been injured by a recalled product, you might wish to contact a Charleston personal injury lawyer who can help.
