June 12, 2002Graco Has Recalled Toy Track on Activity
- Graco Children's Products, Inc. has recalled
about 152,000 toy
tracks attached to children's activity centers. The toy track can break,
presenting a cut or pinch hazard and exposed small parts pose a choking
hazard to young children.
Graco has received 11 reports of the toy tracks breaking. Four children
received minor scratches and one child's finger was pinched.
The recalled activity centers include the Tot Wheels V, models 4511 and
4521, and the Convertible Entertainer, models 4652 and 35225. The model
numbers and the words, "made in U.S.A." are printed on a label on the
underside of the tray on the activity centers. The green wavy toy track sits
on the tray of the activity center. Five objects spin and slide along the
Discount, department and juvenile product stores sold the activity centers
nationwide from November 2001 through May 2002 for between $30 and $70.
Consumers should stop using these activity centers with toy tracks
immediately, and contact Graco to receive a free replacement track. For more
