Kmart Corp. Announces Recall of Wooden Toy Vehicles


Kmart Corp., of Troy, Mich., is voluntarily recalling about 50,000 wooden vehicles that are filled with candy. These products may be given to children as toys. The wheels on the wooden toys may break off into small parts, which may pose a choking hazard to young children.

 The recalled wooden vehicles include a red wagon, truck and train and were packaged with candy. The following UPC codes are located on the bottom of the vehicles: 694405900012 (wagon), 694405900029 (truck), and 694405900036 (train). The wooden toy vehicles were made in China. Kmart stores nationwide sold these wooden vehicles from November 2002 through December 2002 for about $5.

Consumers should take them away from children immediately and return them to any Kmart store for a full refund. For additional information, consumers can contact Kmart at (800) 63KMART anytime.
