Fisher Price Recalls
The first of two Fisher Price recalls includes 2.5 million Lift and Lock swing sets. The company says there's a problem with the t-shaped plastic restraint that's supposed to hold the child in the swing. Some children have been able to get out of the restraint and have fallen.
There have been 38 injuries reported, 8 of them serious. The model numbers are as follows:
The Lift and Lock swings have been sold since January 1991. The sets were sold in toy stores, and discount stores for about $19.
The other Fisher Price product is the Get up and Go Walker. It is a three-sided push toy that looks like a car. Small children leaning forward on it can tip it over and fall. 132 children have been injured.
The walkers have been sold since July 1997 for about $30.
Fisher Price says you should stop using the toys and call for a free repair kit at, 1-800-343-1502.
Kids Line Recall
Kids Line Incorporated is recalling 46,000 "Le Cradle" Bassinets. Infants can get trapped in an opening between the bassinet's side and mattress platform and may be suffocated. The company says it happened to a three-month-old boy in Florida.
They've been selling the cradles for eleven years at a price of $100 to $200. To get a free repair kit, call Kids Line toll free at 866-532-7235.
