East Aurora, NY—The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Health Canada and Fisher-Price have voluntarily recalled about 7 million Fisher Price Trikes and Tough Trikes toddler tricycles and another 150,000 in Canada. The recall was initiated on September 30, 2010 over serious injury hazards the tricycles pose.

The recall was initiated after discovering that a child can hit, sit or fall on the protruding plastic ignition keys, which can cause serious injury, including genital bleeding.

According to the CPSC press release, “This recall involves the Fisher-Price Trikes and Tough Trikes toddler tricycles… that have either a disc-shaped or D-shaped pretend key. The model numbers are located under the seat in the storage compartment. The trikes are intended for children 2 to 5 years of age. The pretend keys are located about 3 inches in front of the seat and protrude at least 5/8 inches above the trike’s body. The trikes manufactured after June 16, 2010 are not included in this recall. These trikes have a modified key in a flattened D shape (see picture below) and a manufacturer run number higher than 1670Q2. The run number indicates the trike was manufactured on the 167th day of 2010 or on June 16, 2010. The run number is found under the seat below the model number.”

The tricycles were sold nationwide from January 1997 through September 2010. For all model numbers involved in this recall, please visit http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prhtml10/10359.html.

Consumers can contact Fisher-Price to obtain a free replacement key.
