Health Canada, the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (US CPSC), and Fisher-Price have jointly recalled the Fisher-Price Little People® Builders' Load'n Go Wagon (model number P8977) due to risk of laceration from the underside of the truck's plastic yellow handle. NB: the model with a green handle is not affected by this recall.
The recall came following seven reports of incidents, five of which involved children receiving cuts requiring stitches or surgical glue. No incidents were reported in Canada as yet.
Consumers should immediately take the recalled wagons away from children and contact Fisher-Price for instructions on how to obtain a free replacement handle.
Call Fisher-Price's toll free number 1-800-432-5437 to speak to a Consumer Relations agent or visit their website.
Approximately 2,800 of the trucks were distributed to retail stores across Canada, and 208,000 in the United States between June 2009 to July 2011.
