August 26, 2008: International Playthings Stroller Activity Bars Recall
Small parts can detach, posing a choking hazard to children
According to the US Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC), International Playthings, of Parsippany, New Jersey, is voluntarily recalling approximately 10,000 of its Taggies™ Strollin’ Along Stroller Activity Bars. Three consumers have reported that the shiny material has detached from the bars. While no injuries have been reported, this detached material may pose a choking hazard if ingested.
Do You Own These Stroller Bars?
The recalled stroller bars were sold under brand name “Taggies™ Strollin’ Along Stroller Activity Bars.” The bars are multicolored and made of fabric and plastic; they feature a yellow giraffe, a purple hippo, and a blue elephant attached to a 12″ long elliptical base with straps that attach to a stroller. The Taggies™ and Earlyears® logos are located on woven and satin labels sewn into the seam on the lower left front of the activity bar.
The carriers were sold at specialty toy stores nationwide and on the Internet from February 2007 through July 2008 for about $23.
