A 2010 Fisher Price recall might have a lot of parents worried about products sold under the Fisher Price name. According to a Fisher Price press release, there is a rather large list of products that are on this recall list, and reports have the sheer volume reaching more than 10 million total. This has even led Fisher Price to create a product recall web page, where they go over the reasons for each of the recalled products that have been tied to the company name. While they have had recalls in the past, this new one seems more extensive than any we have heard about.
Some of the products that are in the Fisher Price recall include Trikes and Tough Trikes toddler tricycles; Healthy Care, Easy Clean and Close to Me High Chairs; Fisher-Price Little People Wheelies Stand ‘n Play Rampway; and even an inflatable ball that is part of one of the products. The reasons for each of the products getting recalled is a bit different, but if you go to the product recall web page we provided above, the company gives a detailed explanation of why each product now finds itself on these lists. Make sure, if you have purchased any Fisher Price products, that you check the list to make sure.
The General Manager of Fisher Price (Kevin Curran) wrote a letter to consumers that can be found on the recall website, and in it he talks about how he too has many questions about the products that have been recalled. It’s an active movement toward putting a face to this recall, and he notes that the company will be trying its best to reach out to parents and help them figure out if they have a recalled product. For some of these products, there will be a simple fix that can be done with a replacement part or repair kit, and Fisher Price is stating that they will work hard to get those kits and parts into the hands of their customers.
It’s really good that Fisher Price is getting ahead of this product recall, and that they are providing so much information to consumers about what is going on. It’s not always easy to get in contact with customers who have purchased toys, simply because they have been so dispersed after purchase.
Now it will be up to parents who hear about the recall to check the product listings, and determine if they need to get one of the recalled toys fixed as quickly as possible. Hopefully this doesn’t negatively reflect on Fisher Price too badly, because they have produced quite a few toys that are great for kids and have never been mentioned in a recall before.
