WASHINGTON (AP) _ A Pennsylvania company is recalling about 152,000 toy tracks attached to children's activity centers because the tracks can break, creating pieces that are a choking and injury hazard for young children.

Graco Children's Products, Inc., of Elverson, has received 11 reports of the toy tracks breaking, including four incidents where children received minor scratches, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said Wednesday.

The recalled activity centers include the Tot Wheels V, models 4511 and 4521, and the Convertible Entertainer, models 4652 and 35225. The model numbers and the words ``made in U.S.A.'' are printed on a label on the underside of the activity center tray. Five objects spin and slide along the green toy track that sits on the tray.

Discount, department and juvenile product stores sold the activity centers from November 2001 through May 2002 for between $30 and $70.

The safety commission said consumers should stop using these activity centers and contact Graco to receive a free replacement track by calling toll-free 1-800-673-0392.
