March 30, 2012: Toy Truck Gifts with T-Shirt Purchase Recalled by Happy Shirts
About 9,000 toy truck gifts that came with boy’s T-shirts have been recalled due to fire hazards. The shirts sold exclusively at Kohl’s.
What’s the Deal?
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Happy Shirts, of Honolulu, Hawaii, has recalled about 9,000 toy truck gifts that came with boy’s T-shirts. Connections in the toy trucks battery compartment can smolder or catch the trucks on fire, posing a fire and burn hazard to consumers.
Happy Shirts has received one report of a toy truck catching fire and three reports of toy trucks smoldering when batteries were inserted. No injuries have been reported.
Do You Own It?
This recall involves Big Movers Super Car toy trucks that were gifts with the purchase of Big Movers T-shirts. The 4-inch long blue trucks have oversized tires and a flashing light on top and were sold with a yellow, red, and blue logo on the hood. The navy T-shirts were sold in boys’ sizes S, M, and L. The shirts sold exclusively at Kohl’s stores nationwide and www.kohls.com between February 2012 and March 2012 for about $20.
What Should You Do?
Consumers should immediately take the toy trucks from children and remove the battery. Consumers can contact Happy Shirts for instructions on returning the truck for a refund.
