The Cycle

One day closer to Christmas, one more toy recall

Fisher-Price, Mattel’s preschool division, along with the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) announced a recall of 155,000 toys today. This time around though it had nothing to do with lead paint or China. Instead, the cause for the recall is due to small parts on its Laugh & Learn Learning Kitchen toys, manufactured in Mexico, that pose a risk for small children, CNN reports. The CPSC said there have been 48 reports of pieces of the faucet or the clock hands separating from the toys. There have been two reports of children gagging on pieces, one report of a child that started choking on a piece, and one report of a child who choked on a piece.
