Henry Gordy "Eggscavators" Toy Trucks Recalled

Plainfield, NJ (SafetyAlerts) - Henry Gordy International is recalling 40,000 Eggscavators Toy Trucks because the mixer on the cement truck may detach posing a choking hazard to young children.

The product known as "Eggscavators" (Item Number 187) is a set of three plastic construction vehicles. Each set includes one of each of the following (colors may vary):

  • A dump truck with blue wheels, blue body and yellow dumper.
  • A cement truck with blue wheels, red body and yellow mixer.
  • A bulldozer with blue wheels, yellow body and red dumper and steering wheel.

Embossed on the bottom of each vehicle are the words "MADE IN HONGKONG". The cement and dump trucks have white sticker labels on them that read "EGGScavators". Each vehicle is two inches wide and two and one-half inches long.

These egg-shaped construction trucks have been sold nationwide since 1987 for under $2.00 a set.

Neither the CPSC nor the company is aware of any injuries involving this product. This voluntary recall is being conducted to prevent the possibility of injury.

Consumers are urged to take these toys away from young children immediately and return them to the store where purchased for a refund.

These potentially hazardous toys were reported to CPSC by the Oregon State Public Interest Reseach Group.
