Graco Announce Recall of Toy Track on Activity Centers
Graco Children's Products, Inc., of Elverson, Pa.,
is voluntarily recalling about 152,000 toy tracks attached to children's
activity centers. The toy track can break, presenting a cut or pinch hazard and
exposed small parts pose a choking hazard to young children. Graco has received
11 reports of the toy tracks breaking. Four children received minor scratches
and one child's finger was pinched.
The recalled activity centers include the Tot Wheels V, models 4511 and 4521, and the Convertible Entertainer, models 4652 and 35225. The model numbers and the words, "made in U.S.A." are printed on a label on the underside of the tray on the activity centers. The green wavy toy track sits on the tray of the activity center. Five objects spin and slide along the toy track. Discount, department and juvenile product stores sold the activity centers nationwide from November 2001 through May 2002 for between $30 and $70.
Consumers should stop using these activity centers with toy tracks immediately, and contact Graco to receive a free replacement track. For more information, consumers can contact Graco at (800) 673-0392 anytime or visit the firm's web site at http://www.gracobaby.com/Sections/RecallInformation/Default.asp
