The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a recall of about 1.7 million Little Tikes toy tool sets and trucks, citing a choking hazard from toy nails.
The oversized plastic toy nails were also recalled in August 2009, the CPSC said in a statement. The new voluntary recall involves another 11 models of Little Tikes’ Workshop and tool sets.
The toy nails are about 3–1/4 inches (8 cm) long by 1–1/4 inch (3 cm) in diameter. They are red or blue and have a large round head, and below the nail head there is a plastic ridge, slightly smaller than the nail head and about an inch in diameter.
