Child’s death prompts toy dart gun recall

WASHINGTON – A Los Angeles toy importer is recalling about 22,000 toy dart gun sets after an 8-year-old child’s death.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission said children can choke on the soft plastic darts included in the Action Team toy dart gun imported by OKK Trading Inc.

The agency reports that an 8-year-old boy in Port Arthur, Texas, died in November 2007 when one of the darts became lodged in his throat.

In addition to the dart gun and darts, the Chinese-made sets included a toy watch, a baton, a walkie-talkie, a whistle and a badge. They were sold at discount stores around the country between December 2006 and March 2008.
