July 28, 2011: Fisher-Price Recalls Little People® Builders' Load 'n Go Wagons
About 210,800 wagon toys have been recalled due to laceration hazards.
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada, in cooperation with Fisher-Price, of East Aurora, New York, have recalled about 210,800 (2,800 in Canada) Little People® Builders’ Load ‘n Go Wagon. The back of the wagon’s plastic handle has molded-in reinforcement. This design adds stiffness and facilitates children gripping the handle.
