[USA] Recall to Repair: FisherPrice Little People Builders’ Load ‘n’ Go Wagon

 Fisher-Price (a brand owned by Mattel), the CPSC (U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission) and Health Canada have announced a voluntary recall of the Fisher Price Little People Builders’ Load ‘n Go Wagon; due to a laceration hazard.

The back of the wagon’s plastic handle has moulded-in reinforcement, which by design adds stiffness and facilitates children gripping the handle, however, the handle poses a laceration hazard if a child falls on it.

CPSC and Fisher-Price are aware of seven reports of injuries, including five reports of children requiring surgical glue or stitches. Around 208,000 units of this product – made in Mexico – in the United States and 2,800 in Canada are affected by the recall.
