Fisher Price Recalls Campsite Toy for Possible Choking Hazard

By Kelly Balamuth on August 6, 2010

Manufacturers have an obligation to create products that are safe to use, especially when it comes to children’s products. However, the makers of Little People Play ‘n Go Campsite, Fisher Price, have issued a recall with the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) due to a potential choking hazard that a small plastic figure can pose if broken.

According to the CPSC, there have thankfully been no choking hazard injuries reported at the time of the recall, although about 96,000 units of this particular Fisher Price toy were sold in the U.S. The specific toy in question, part of a play set, is described as being able to bend at the waist, has a green sweater, and has a purple camera around its neck (both the sweater and camera accessories are part of the same piece of molded plastic). Consumers who possess the figurine in question are urged to remove it from their child/children’s possession, and contact Fisher-Price at (800) 432-5437 for a free replacement.

Fortunately, the CPSC was established to help protect consumers from dangerous products. Defective children products can take various forms, and are characterized by either a flaw in a product’s design, an unforeseen flaw created during the manufacturing process, or improperly worded or insufficient safety instructions that fail to warn of potential hazards that the product may pose.

Dangerous products affect consumers all across the country, including Northern California. If you or a loved one has been injured by a dangerous product, it is important to remember that you have rights as a consumer. For more information about how you can hold a negligent manufacturer accountable for your injuries, please contact Balamuth Harrington, LLP.
