Hasbro Nerf Blaster Recall: 46 Reports of Injury

Hasbro, Inc. and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) have issued a Nerf Blaster recall following reports of at least 46 children between 4 and 12 who suffered injuries when the blaster’s plunger caught their skin as the toy was fired.

Approximately 330,000 Nerf N-Strike Recon CS-6 Blasters sold between November 2007 and August 2008 for about $20 each are subject to this recall.

The Nerf blaster is yellow with an orange plunger, a black handle and a reload clip facility. It has five interchangeable parts including a flip-up sight, shoulder stock, dual-mode beam, barrel extension and quick re-load clip.

Both sides of the blaster display the word “NERF” in black lettering. The orange plunger bears the word “ARMED”. The gray cocking mechanism has the name “RECON CS-6”. The packaging bears the model number 63552 and UPC codes 653569272021 and 653569311218. The recall involves only blasters with an exposed orange plunger.

As a result of a design defect, the Nerf N-Strike Blaster’s plunger could pose a risk of injury to young children if skin on their neck, face or chest are caught in the device. The injuries reported to the manufacturer so far involved complaints of abrasions, pinch marks, bruising, blood blisters and welts.

Hasbro and the U.S. CPSC have advised consumers to immediately take the recalled Nerf Blasters away from children until appropriate modifications can be made. Hasbro is offering a free cylindrical cover, which will help prevent injury. Hasbro can be reached toll free at (800) 245-0910 or through their website www.hasbro.com/nerf
