The decision of recall was taken due to some serious problems from these Fisher Price products. Kids can suffer from genital bleeding if they land on the protruding plastic ignition key of the Fisher Price Trikes. For this particular product, about 10 cases of injuries have been reported. There is a risk of laceration in the case of High Chairs. Approximate 14 problems have been reported which includes one incident in Canada. Moreover, there is a choking risks associated with infant toys with inflatable balls as the ball can be detached in it.

Mattel said the recalls, in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), and Health Canada, are also effective in international markets in a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The premarket losses was recovered by the shares briefly, but at mid-day were down about 1.7 percent, or 42 cents, at $23.13 on the Nasdaq. “This raises a concern because of the number of toys being recalled,” Wedbush Morgan Analyst Ed Woo said, noting that investors remember well Mattel’s large-scale 2007 recall of toys contaminated with lead.

After 2007’s recall, Regulations on toy manufacturing became more stringent which leads Woo to believe that this latest recall will probably not to spread other products as did the last one. Mattel’s and RC2 Corp’s were the biggest manufacturers have faced recalls. RC2 recalled Thomas & Friends brand wooden vehicles and set components when it was discovered that the paint used contained lead.

This year, a massive recall of faulty medicines has been mounted by Johnson & Johnson which includes 135 million bottles of 40 children’s and infant products such as Children’s Tylenol and Benadryl. “Another 10 million recalled toys demonstrates the growing epidemic of hazardous products lurking in people’s homes across America,” said Dan Verakis, founder and CEO of SafetyBook.org, which provides a recall-monitoring service to consumers. “Over 55 million products have now been recalled this year, including about 42 million that are a direct threat to children,” he said.

It is advisable to parents take away those toys instantly from their children and contact at 1-800-432-5437 in order to find out how they can obtain new parts for them.
