Fisher-Price Little People recall

Recall Fisher-Price Little People Play 'n Go CampsiteTM

August 5 2010 has seen a joint recall with Fisher-Price, Health Canada, and the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (US CPSC)

Which product is it?

Specifically this recall involves the Fisher-Price Little People Play 'n Go CampsiteTM. This is a six-piece plastic playset that includes Sonya Lee (a figure), a tent and other accessories. The name "Sonya Lee" is printed on the underside of the figure. Product number R6935 is printed on the toy's packaging. This product is sold for children aged 2-5 years-old.

Only the Sonya Lee figures that bend at the waist, have a green sweater and a purple camera around the neck are included in this recall. No other Sonya Lee figure is affected. The other five pieces of the playset are not affected by the recall.

What is the danger?

The danger is that the plastic Sonya Lee figure in the playset can break at the waist. This will expose small parts which pose a choking hazard to young children.

Fisher-Price has received one report from a Canadian Consumer and seven reports from American consumers of the Sonya Lee figure breaking. No injuries have been reported nor has Health Canada received any reports of incidents or injuries that are related to the use of the product.

What do I do?

If you have a play set with the defective Sonya Lee figure then take it away from your children. Contact Fisher-Price to arrange for the figure's return in exchange for a free replacement figure. You can contact Fisher-Price at 1-800-432-5437 anytime or visit the Fisher-Price website.

These items were sold online, at major retailers, discount stores, department stores and toy stores nationwide. The units were sold between October 2009 and into August 2010 in Canada and the USA.
