Isaac Morris Ltd. Recalls Tonka® Toy Trucks

Tonka Truck RecallNew York, NY (SafetyAlerts) - Isaac Morris Ltd. is voluntarily recalling about 3,300 Tonka toy trucks.  The toy trucks contain small parts, presenting a choking hazard to young children. Only trucks distributed with toddler T-shirts are being recalled because the trucks' small parts pose a choking hazard for children under age 3.

The trucks involved in this recall are those distributed with Isaac Morris' line of Tonka toddler T-shirts, sized 2T and 3T. The trucks were packaged separately, but attached to the T-shirts. The trucks are yellow die-cast metal with black wheels. They look like grader trucks. "Tonka" is on the truck. "Maisto...Made in Thailand" is on the bottom of the truck.

Discount and toy stores nationwide sold the T-shirts with the trucks attached from November 1998 through March 1999 for about $10.

Consumers should take the toy away from young children immediately and contact Isaac Morris Ltd. at Hasbro to obtain a $1 refund for the toy's value and postage reimbursement.

For more information, consumers should call (800) 248-6652 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. EDT Monday through Friday.
