RECALL: Fisher-Price Learning Pots and Pans™ Toys Due to Choking Hazard
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Fisher Price today announced a voluntary recall of about 15,000 Learning Pots & Pans™ Toys because missing screws in the blue toy pan can cause the clear plastic cover to come loose and release small balls, presenting a choking hazard to young children.
Fisher-Price has received five reports of the plastic covers detaching and releasing the small balls. No injuries have been reported.
This recall involves Learning Pots and Pans™ toy sets with stackable pots and pans, a lid and shape-sorting blocks. The toys have light and sound features that operate on three AA batteries. Model number G6685 is located on the bottom of the blue pan.
Consumers should immediately take these recalled toys away from children and examine the bottom of the blue pan. The pan should contain six screws. If all six screws are installed, no further action is necessary. If any screws are missing, the consumer should contact Fisher-Price at (888) 521-0820 anytime or visit the firm’s Web site at www.service.mattel.com to arrange for the return of the blue pan for a replacement.
