Troy The Activity Truck Recall Issued After Children Gag on Beads

About 42,400 toy trucks known as “Troy the Activity Truck” have been recalled because of beads that could break off and pose a chocking hazard for young children. 

The Troy the Activity Truck recall was announced on April 4 by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Health Canada.

Infantino LLC, the manufacturer, has received at least 28 reports that young children were able to get the beads off of the bead runs on the truck, including at least two reports where children were found gagging on the plastic beads. The CPSC has determined that the ease of which the trucks’ bead runs can be detached and the beads removed constitutes a choking hazard for children.

The recall affects 40,500 Troy the Activity Trucks sold in the United States and 1,900 sold in Canada. The trucks are blue, red and yellow with a face on the front and plastic star, circle and heart beads attached to bead runs on the back. The trucks have “Infantino” printed on the front and model number 153-210, 206-110 or 506-110C is printed on the bottom of the truck. The truck plays music and the back wheels spin when turned on.

The trucks were sold at toy stores nationwide, including Babies R Us, Toys R Us, and were also sold at TJ Maxx and Marshalls, from September 2009 through February 2011 for about $15.

The CPSC and Health Canada recommend that consumers immediately stop allowing children access to the toy and contact Infantino to receive a free replacement toy. Consumers with questions can visit the company’s website at http://service.infantino.com or call 1-888-808-3111.
