7 Million Trikes Pose Genital Injury Hazard; Different Risks in Other Toys
Fisher-Price has recalled more than 11 million toys for various reasons, including 7 million tricycles with a protruding key that has caused genital injuries to young girls.
There have been 10 reports of injuries from the tricycles, including six incidents requiring medical attention after 2- and 3-year-old girls fell on the disc- or D-shaped keys. Some of these injuries resulted in genital bleeding.
At the same time, Fisher-Price is announcing recalls of several other toys with parts that pose a choking hazard and recalls of high chairs with pegs on the rear legs that have cut or otherwise injured children.
