Fisher-Price, a Mattel Inc. brand, and maker of approximately 614,000 Laugh & Learn musical chairs, is cooperating with U.S. consumer safety officials on a voluntary recall because there may be a strangulation hazard, as reported by [REUTERS].
[The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission] has issued a news release stating that Fisher-Price received three reports of young children getting their necks lodged between the seatback and the side table of the toy. One child apparently received a welt on the neck.
Discount department and toy stores sold the product nationwide from May 2005 through January 2006.
The recalled Laugh & Learn Musical Learning Chair is a plastic infant toy that measures about 17 inches high. It plays music and teaches children numbers and letters. It also features a blue chair with four green plastic legs and a side table with a purple base and white top. The table holds a clock, book, and a lamp. Smiley faces are displayed on the lamp and seat back. "Fisher-Price" is written on the front of the chair. The packaging states that the toy is intended for children 12 months through 36 months of age. The model numbers are H4609, H7167 through H7173, H8157, H8998, and J0272 through J0275 can be found on the underside of the seat of the chair.
Consumers should take the recalled musical chair away from children immediately and contact Fisher-Price to receive a free repair kit that contains a plastic piece that connects in between the seatback and side table, preventing the possibility of entrapment.
