Toys R Us Recalls More than 12,000 Toy Trunks Due to Laceration Hazard

Toys R Us Recalls More than 12,000 Toy Trunks Due to Laceration Hazard

Many products with sharp components have been recalled this year. Among these products, there have been a few small kitchen appliances. For instance, last month, Frigidaire had to recall approximately 14,000 blenders due to a blade shaft assembly that could break and pose a laceration hazard. In addition to hazardous kitchen products, there have also been a few children’s products with sharp pieces. Recently, Toys R Us issued a recall for approximately 12,650 toy travel trunks due to a laceration hazard.

According to the CPSC, “the blue metal handle on the trunk can be sharp, presenting a laceration hazard to the user.” To date, Toys R Us has received six incident reports involving these trunks. In one report, a consumer had to receive stitches after being cut by one trunk’s handle.

The “Journey Girl Travel Trunks” are 21-inches tall and are purple and blue. The hazardous handle is blue and metal. Meant to carry dolls, the recalled trunks contain three clothes hangers and two pull-out storage drawers. The recall involves travel trunks with the UPC # 4897027965070 and model number 5F5F79E. Consumers can find the model number on the bottom of the recalled travel trunks.

The travel trunks were available in Toys R Us stores and at ToysRUs.com from October 2012 through February 2013. The recalled toy trunks were priced at approximately $30. Owners of the recalled trunk are advised to stop using the product and place it out of the reach of children. Consumers can take the recalled trunks back to Toys R Us stores for a full refund or store credit. Consumers can contact Toys R Us at (800) 896-7787 from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. ET weekdays and Saturday, and from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. ET Sunday. Additionally, Toys R Us’ website provides information about the recall.
