The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recently announced a recall of 495,000 wooden toy vehicles sold at Target due to a potential choking hazard. Representatives from Target did not immediately return Red Tricycle’s request for comment.
According to the CPSC’s alert, the wheels on the vehicles could detach. After detaching the loose wheels pose a chocking hazard to young children. If you know or think you have these toys in your home, read on for more information on the recall.
Recalled Product Description: Bullseye’s Playground Toy Vehicles
The recalled toys, sold under the name Bullseye’s Playground, include wooden vehicles sold both individually and in an eight-pack. The specific vehicles recalled include a Santa’s sleigh, train caboose, ice cream truck/food truck, taxi, police car and digger.
The vehicles were sold exclusively at Target stores and at Target.com between October 2018 and November 2018.
Why the Vehicles Were Recalled
The wheels have the potential to detach, posing a chocking hazard. Even though there are no reported injuries so far, there are four reports of detaching wheels—one of which included a missing wheel when the toy’s packaging was opened.
How To Tell If Your Toy Vehicles Are Part of the Recall
The Bullseye’s Playground toy vehicles included in Target’s recall feature specific item, DPCI and UPC numbers of codes. These numbers/codes are found on a white sticker on the bottom of each vehicle. Visit the CPSC’s website here for the full list.
