Toy activity truck recalled in U.S. and Canada due to choking hazard

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada, in cooperation with Infantino LLC, announced a voluntary recall of Troy the Activity Truck. Plastic beads on the activity truck’s bead runs can detach, posing a choking hazard to young children.

The recall affects about 40,500 products in the U.S. and 1,900 in Canada. The recall involves “Troy the Activity Truck,” which is blue, red and yellow with plastic star, circle and heart beads attached to the bead runs on the back of the truck, and has a face on the front. “Infantino” is printed on the front of the toy truck. Model number 153-201, 206-110 or 506-110C is printed underneath the truck. When the switch is turned on, the truck plays music and the back wheels spin.

This product was sold at Babies R Us, Toys R Us, Meijer, TJ Maxx, Marshalls and other toy stores nationwide from September 2009 through February 2011 for about $15.

Infantino has received 28 reports of the plastic beads detaching from the bead runs on the activity trucks, including two reports of young children gagging on the plastic beads.

Consumers should immediately take the recalled toy away from children and contact Infantino to receive a free replacement toy.
