Playskool Tool Bench Recall

By  | 

Playskool is recalling about 255-thousand tool-bench toys after the deaths of two young boys. The announcement comes from the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The children, both boys aged two-years-old or younger suffocated when plastic toy nails sold with the "Team Talkin' Tool Bench" became lodged in their throats.

The toy benches have been sold since October of last year for about 35 dollars each.

Playskool is conducting a voluntary recall, targeting the toy nails, hoping to prevent any further problems. Consumers are urged to take the over-sized nails away from children immediately and contact Playskool to get information on returning the nails for a $50 certificate for a Playskool product.
