June 18, 2002Radio Flyer Has Recalled Ride-On Push
- Radio Flyer Inc. has recalled
about 15,000 Little
Wooden Push Cars for repair. A child can pull the horn off the car's
steering wheel, and a small part inside poses a choking hazard.
Radio Flyer Inc. has received three reports of the horns being pulled off,
but no injuries have been reported.
The Little Wooden Push Car is about 24-inches long, 14-inches wide, and
18-inches high. The car has a natural wood body, a red steering wheel
column, a red metal bar on the back, and a red plastic horn on the steering
wheel. "Radio Flyer" is written on both sides of the car. A child sits in
the push car and moves the car with his or her feet. The car is for use by
children 1- to 3-years-old.
Toy stores, catalogues and web retailers sold these cars nationwide from
February 1999 through June 2002 for about $60.
Consumers should take the recalled cars away from young children immediately
and contact Radio Flyer Inc. to receive a replacement steering wheel. For
more information, consumers can call Radio Flyer Inc. at (800) 621-7613
between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday. Consumers also can
contact Radio Flyer Inc. at www.radioflyer.com or by e-mail at 218Repair@RadioFlyer.com.
Some of these push cars do not have horns. Only Wooden Push Cars with horns
are part of this recall. No other Radio Flyer products are involved in this
