March 13, 2012: Guidecraft Recalls Children's Play Theaters
About 2,150 children’s play theaters have been recalled due to tip-over hazards.
Many styles of theater are included in this recall. Image here represents just one.
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada, in cooperation with Guidecraft Inc., of Winthrop, Minnesota, have recalled about 2,150 (about 1,800 in the US and 350 in Canada) 4-in-1 Dramatic Play Theater Toys. The recalled children’s toys can unexpectedly tip over during play, posing an entrapment hazard to young children.
