Little People Builders' Load 'n Go Wagons
Fisher-Price, of East Aurora, N.Y. announced a voluntary recall of Little People Builders’ Load ‘n Go Wagons because the back of the wagon’s plastic handle has molded-in reinforcement which adds stiffness and facilitates children gripping the handle, but also poses a laceration hazard if a child falls on it. This recall involves the Fisher Price’s Little People Builders’ Load ‘n Go Wagon model #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. The affected wagons were sold at mass merchandise retail stores nationwide from June 2009 through July 2011 for about $25.
Consumers should immediately take the recalled wagons away from children and contact Fisher-Price for instructions on how to obtain a free repair kit. 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.
