August 8, 2013: Holgate Toys' Playmat Recall
Holgate Toys recalls playmat sets due to choking hazard.
What’s the Deal?
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), in cooperation with Holgate Toys, are announcing the recall since the wheels on the wooden vehicles can detach, posing a choking hazard to young children. Holgate Toys has received one report of the wheels detaching from the body of a vehicle. No injuries have been reported.

The Wegmans Playmat Set includes a 24-inch by 30-inch cotton canvas playmat and four toy wooden vehicles. The toy vehicles include a blue car, a red “Wegmans” delivery van, a green “Wegmans” farm tractor and a yellow “School Bus.” The sets were sold in a yellow box measuring about 12-inches by 12-inches with “Wegmans Playmat Set,” an age label circle with “2+” and “Made in the USA” printed on the front of the box. UPC Code 0 7789028735 4 is printed on the back of the box. About 5,000 sold exclusively at Wegmans Food Stores nationwide from October 2012 through June 2013 for about $25.
