Toy Truck Product Recall in United States and Canada

A voluntary product recall announced by Health Canada and the U. S. Consumer Product Safety Commission on April 4, 2011, involves a child’s toy called Troy the Activity Truck. According to the recall, people should stop use of the product immediately and not attempt to resell it, since reselling a recalled item is illegal.

Around 40,500 of these items have been sold in the United States, and 1,900 have been sold in Canada. The toys were sold for around $15 each in stores like Marshalls, Babies R Us, Toys R Us, TJ Maxx and Meijer from September 2009 through February 2011.

The toy was manufactured in China by a company called Infantino LLC, and “Infantino” is printed across the front of the truck. The danger of the toy involves 28 reports of small plastic beads detaching from the back of the truck, and two reports of children gagging on the beads. If you are unsure whether this toy is in your home, check the model number on the bottom for 153-210, 206-110 or 506-110C.

In order to remedy the situation, people with a model of Troy the Activity Truck should contact Infantino as soon as they can in order to get a free replacement toy.
