Kellogg Company Recalls Toy Cars Inside Boxes of Cereal

Kellog Car RecallBattle Creek, MI (SafetyAlerts) - Kellogg Company is recalling 837,000 toy cars, that were packed inside some Kellogg's cereal boxes. The tires can detach from the wheels of these cars, posing a choking hazard for young children.

Kellogg has received two reports of the tires detaching from the wheels of these toy cars. No injuries have been reported.

These Nascar® Pull'N Go Hot Wheels® style toy cars are red and yellow with a white hood. Pulling the car backwards a few inches on a surface causes it to go forward. "Kellogg'sTM" is written on the hood, and the number "5TM" and "Terry LabonteTM" is written on the roof. The words "China" and "MFG. FOR KELLOGG CO. TM, (c)2000" are molded into the plastic underframe. No other Kellogg's® Pull'N Go cars or Hot Wheels® cars are part of this recall.

Various club and a few grocery stores nationwide sold these cars in specially marked packages of Kellogg's® Tri-Fun-PakTM 40-ounce box, Kellogg's® Froot Loops® 43.6-ounce box, Kellogg's® Mini-Wheats® Frosted Bite Size 58.8-ounce box, and Kellogg's® Crispix® 31.4-ounce box. The cars were distributed inside boxes of these cereals from March 2000 through June 2000.
