Buffalo parents should be aware that Fisher-Price recently recalled more than 10 million products sold in the United States because they pose a potential hazard to children.  This recall involves a variety of different products.

Fourteen models of the Fisher-Price Trikes and Tough Trikes tricycles are being recalled because a plastic ignition key that sticks up in front of the seat can cause injury, including genital bleeding, if a child sits or falls on it.  Fisher-Price is aware of ten cases of injury associated with the key, including six that required medical attention.

Seven models of infant activity centers with inflatable balls are being recalled because the valve on the inflatable balls can come off, posing a potential choking hazard for young children.  There have been 46 reports of valves falling off and 14 reports of valves found in children’s mouths. 

950,000 Fisher-Price high chairs are being recalled because of injuries caused to children who have fallen onto the pegs on the back legs.  Seven children have required stitches and one suffered a damaged tooth.

Finally, the Fisher-Price Little People Wheelies Stand ‘n Play Rampway is being recalled because the wheels may come off  two of the cars in the set and pose a choking hazard to young children.

If you believe you own one of these pontentially dangerous products, please stop using it and contact Fisher-Price for more information.  Fisher-Price is providing either free repair kits or replacement products for the recalled items.  More information can be found at
