About 50,000 mini vehicle toys have been recalled due to choking hazards.
What's the Deal?
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Green Toys Inc., of Mill Valley, California, has recalled about 50,000 Green Toys™ Mini Vehicles. The wheels and hubcaps on the toy cars can detach, posing a choking hazard to young children.
Do You Own It?
The recalled Mini Vehicles were manufactured from March 2012 through June 2012. The manufacturing date is represented by a circle with an arrow in the middle that can be found imprinted on the underside of the front of the car. To the left and right of the arrow are numbers that represent the year and the arrow itself points to the number that represents the month. Cars with an "I" etched into the underside of the car next to the date stamp are not part of the recall.
The toys were sold by mass merchandisers, grocery stores, and independent toy and specialty stores nationwide, and by online retailers from April 2012 to June 2012. The cars cost about $5 each or $18 for the set.

Consumers should take the product away from children immediately and contact Green Toys Inc. to receive a full refund.
