McCrory Stores, Inc. Recalls "Spring N' Bounce Car" Toys

York, PA (SafetyAlerts) - McCrory Stores, Inc. is voluntarily recalling approximately 3,800 "Spring N' Bounce Car" toys, items #8941 and 8941S, because of small parts which could detach and become a choking hazard to young children. This recall is being conducted in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).

The "Spring N' Bounce" is a plastic friction powered toy car with one of several spring-supported monster head figures located in the driver's seat. Each assortment comes with individual playing features such as a clicking hammer and bouncing hood. Item #8941S also comes with a pencil sharpener. The cars are approximately four inches long and two inches wide and come in a variety of colors.

When tested by the CPSC in accordance with regulations under the Federal Hazardous Substances Act, the car wheels, hood, windshield frame and a hammer located on one of the varieties of this toy separated from the toy posing a choking hazard.

The Spring N' Bounce car was imported from China and sold nationwide between August 1, 1989 and January 5, 1990 by Bargain Time, Britts, Elmore, McCrory, H.L. Green, Kress, McClellan, T.G.&Y., Silver Kittinger, Newberry Stores, G.C. Murphy and some independent variety stores. The toy cars carried a suggested retail price of $2.49 each. 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 of the purchase price. Consumers with questions about this recall may contact McCrory Corporation toll-free at 1-800-284-3704.

CPSC learned about the potentially hazardous toys from the U.S. Public Interest Research Group this past holiday season.
