Health Canada and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission report of a recall involving "Troy the Activity Truck" by Infantino, a motorized brightly coloured plastic toy truck with flexible plastic tubing in orange and green. The plastic tubing can detach and release the small sliding shapes; these small parts pose a choking hazard to young children.
See HSW Product Details tab for specifics on the affected item.
The US CPSC and Infantino have received 25 reported incidents of parts detaching. 15 of the reports indicated that a child had a detached shape in his/her mouth and 2 of these reported that the child was gagging.
Recalled products were sold in Canada at various retail stores from September 2009 to February 2011.
Corrective Action: Consumers should immediately take the toy away from young children and contact Infantino for instructions on receiving a free replacement toy.
