Fisher-Price Recalls to Repair Little People Builders' Load 'n Go Wagons due to Laceration Hazard

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada, in cooperation with the firm named below, today announced a voluntary recall of the following consumer product. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.

Name of Product: Little People® Builders’ Load ‘n Go Wagon

Units: About 208,000 in the United States and 2,800 in Canada

Importer: Fisher-Price, of East Aurora, N.Y.

Hazard: The back of the wagon’s plastic handle has molded-in reinforcement. This design adds stiffness and facilitates children gripping the handle. The handle poses a laceration hazard if a child falls on it.

Incidents/Injuries: CPSC and Fisher-Price are aware of seven reports of injuries, including five reports of children requiring surgical glue or stitches.

Description: This recall involves the Fisher Price’s Little People® Builders’ Load ‘n Go Wagon model number P8977. The product includes a red wagon with a yellow handle, multi-colored plastic blocks and a dog figure. The model number is located on the bottom of the wagon. “Little People® Builders” is found on a label on the side of the wagon and “Fisher Price” is embossed on the handle. Wagons with green handles are not included in this recall.

Sold at: Mass merchandise retail stores nationwide from June 2009 through July 2011 for about $25.

Manufactured in: Mexico

Remedy: Consumers should immediately take the recalled wagons away from children and contact Fisher-Price for instructions on how to obtain a free repair kit.

Consumer Contact: For additional information, contact Fisher-Price at (800) 432-5437 between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or visit the firm’s website at http://www.service.mattel.com/
