Reports of Injury Prompt Fisher-Price Trike Recall

. By
Washington, DCFisher-Price Inc, of East Aurora, NY, is recalling about 7 million Fisher-Price Trikes and Tough Trikes toddler tricycles in the US, and a further 150,000 units in Canada, because a child can strike, sit or fall on the protruding plastic ignition key resulting in serious injury, including genital bleeding.

CPSC and Fisher-Price are aware of 10 reports of incidents resulting in injury. Six of the incidents required medical attention after young girls, ages two to three years old, fell against or on the protruding disc-shaped and D-shaped pretend key.

This recall involves the Fisher-Price Trikes and Tough Trikes toddler tricycles with model numbers listed in the chart below and that have either a disc-shaped or D-shaped pretend key. The model numbers are located under the seat in the storage compartment. The trikes are intended for children 2 to 5 years of age. The pretend keys are located about 3 inches in front of the seat and protrude at least 5/8 inches above the trike's body. The trikes manufactured after June 16, 2010 are not included in this recall. These trikes have a modified key in a flattened D shape (see picture below) and a manufacturer run number higher than 1670Q2. The run number indicates the trike was manufactured on the 167th day of 2010 or on June 16, 2010. The run number is found under the seat below the model number.

The trikes were sold at mass merchandise stores nationwide from January 1997 through September 2010 for about $25.
