Little Tikes Recalls 1.7 Million Toys

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says Little Tikes is expanding an already massive recall of the company's workshop and tool sets because of a choking hazard.

A consumer alert today says more than 1.7 additional units of the Little Tikes workshop and tool sets are being recalled. There was a recall of 1.6 million of the toys in August 2009.

The problem is the toy nails. They are bigger than regular nails but still small enough to choke on.

Since the original recall in 2009, the Consumer Product Safety Commission has received two additional reports of children choking on the toy nails. Fortunately, both children made full recoveries.

The toys were sold between 1990 and 2004. You won't find them on store shelves, but you could run across them in yard sales, consignment shops and hand-me-downs from friends. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled product.
