Fisher-Price Fined $975,000 for Failure to Report Choking Hazard

By Admin on March 01, 2007 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

Toy maker Fisher-Price Inc. has agreed to pay a $975,000 fine for failing to report a choking hazard in one of its toys, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). In September 2002, Fisher-Price received the first notice that a nail fastener in its "Little People Animal Sounds Farm" could separate from the toy and pose a serious choking or aspiration hazard to young children, but the company did not report the problem to CPSC until March 2003. The toy was recalled in 2003. Under federal law, companies must report to CPSC within 24 hours of obtaining information that a product defect creates a substantial risk of injury to the public.
