The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is warning parents that several children have been injured by Little People Builders’ Load ‘n Go Wagons.
The commission and Fisher-Price on Thursday announced a voluntary recall of more than 210,800 wagons in the United States and Canada
The recall notice said the back of the wagons’ plastic handle has molded-in reinforcement that can cut a child who falls on it. Seven injuries have been reported, including five that required stitches or surgical glue.
Model No. P8977 includes a red wagon with a yellow handle, plastic blocks and a dog figure. Wagons with green handles are not included in the recall.
The wagons were sold nationwide between June 2009 and July 2011 for about $25, the recall said.
Parents are urged to immediately take any recalled wagons away from children and contact Fisher-Price for instructions on how to obtain a free repair kit. The company can be reached at 800-432-5437 and at www.service.mattel.com.
If your child has been injured, you are asked to report it at www.saferproducts.gov, 800-638-2772 or teletypewriter at 800-638-8270 for the hearing impaired.
