The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission have recalled more than 1.7 million additional Little Tikes Workshop and Tool Sets. About 1.6 million toy workshop sets and trucks were initially recalled in August 2009.
The recalled workshop and tool sets have oversized, plastic toy nails that can pose a choking hazard to young children. Little Tikes have reported two additional incidents, occurring prior to the August 2009 recall, of children who choked when the toy nail became lodged in their throat.
This recall involves the toy nails sold as part of 11 additional models of Little Tikes Workshop and tool sets listed below. The toy nails are oversized, plastic, about 3 inches long and colored either red or blue.
The products were sold at retailers nationwide from 1990 through 2004 for between $25 and $100.
Consumers should immediately take the toy nails away from young children and contact the firm for free replacement toy nails on (800) 321-0183 or visit www.littletikes.com.
