Little Tikes Workshop Sets and Trucks Recalled Due to Choking Hazard
About 1.6 million Little Tikes Workshop Sets and Trucks have been recalled due to plastic toy nails that can be a choking hazard for children and have resulted in at least one injury for an 11-month old boy from South Carolina.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced the Little Tikes Workshop recall on August 13, including workshops designed as tables, workhorses and trucks.
All of the Little Tikes Workshops contain small toy nails that are about 3 ¼ inches long by 1 ¼ inches in diameter, which pose a choking hazard to young children. At least one reported injury has been associated with the nails, when one of the nails became lodged in an 11-month old boy’s throat. The boy was hospitalized as a result of the incident, but has reportedly made a full recovery.
