Six girls between the ages of two and three have been hospitalized with injuries
caused by a toddler trike made by Fisher Price.
According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Fisher-Price Trikes and Tough Trike tricycle toys have a defective part that makes them dangerous for children. In response to the danger, toy company Fisher Price and the CPSC are working together to recall
7 million of the trikes from across North America.
The toys are dangerous because of an ignition key that is located near the seat of the bike. In the past few months, at least half a dozen serious injuries
have taken place when girls sit, strike, or fall onto the protruding ignition key. These injuries can cause bleeding and injury to the genital area that necessitate medical attention.
All trikes made before June 16, 2010 should be placed out of your child’s reach and owners should contact Fisher-Price for a new and safe key.
