Toy Trucks Recalled

Tuesday, April 5th, 2011

Infantino LLC has issued a recall of its Troy the Activity Truck toy after 28 people reported plastic beads breaking off. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said there were two reports of young children gagging on the pieces. Health Canada received reports of 15 children putting the beads in their mouths and three of the toys breaking, but no injuries.

Around 40,500 of the trucks are involved in the recall. They were sold in both the U.S. and Canada at such stores as Meijer, TJ Maxx and Marshalls between September 2009 and February 2011 for around $15 each. The model numbers are 153-210, 206-110, and 506-110C. The model number can be found on the underside of the truck. The trucks, which have faces, are blue, red, and yellow with a star, circle, and heart beads on the runners of the truck bed. Intantino is printed on the front of the toy.

If you have this truck, take it away from your child and call Infantino at (888) 808-3111 Monday through Friday between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. ET for a replacement.
