The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission recently announced a recall by the manufacturer of Pull-A-Long Friends Toucan, Pull-A-Long Friends Alligator and Pull-A-Long Friends Sharky. According to Syracuse New York dangerous toy lawyers Bottar Leone, PLLC, the child toys may present a choking hazard if wooden parts break loose. The relevant lot codes are: 210720GB (Toucan), 210750GB (Alligator) and 210530GB (Sharky).
While kids toys are much safer than in years past, thousands of children are still injured every year while playing with a toy that did not perform as intended, such as when a part breaks off and is swallowed (causing choking), when a tail or attachment is too long and wraps around a child’s neck (making it difficulty for a child to breathe), or when lead paint or other potentially toxic coatings chip and are inhaled or ingested by an infant (causing poisoning).
While we are not aware of any manufacturers that intentionally create and sell dangerous products, mistakes do happen. In the majority of cases, dangerous toys are the result of a bad design or poor quality control. Recent toy recalls can be found here.
