CPSC and Milton Bradley Announce Recall of 461,000 Party Games after 23 Reports of InjuriesFeb 24, 2006 | Newsinferno News Staff
The Consumer Product Safety Commission and Milton Bradley of East Longmeadow, Massachusetts, have announced a voluntary recall of some 461,000 Chicken Limbo Electronic Party Games made in China. Consumers should stop using the recalled products immediately.
“The game’s two side poles do not fit into their bases properly making the game unstable. This can cause the game to completely fall apart if touched, hitting children playing the game as well as bystanders.”
Milton Bradley has already received 46 reports of the Chicken Limbo party game collapsing unexpectedly. “This includes 23 reports of injuries including bumps, bruises, welts, and red marks, four reports of cuts, one chipped tooth, and one fractured foot.”
The recalled “Chicken Limbo” is a plastic electronic game consisting of two red vertical poles set in yellow bases and an orange horizontal bar with a plastic white chicken at the center of the bar. The game is intended for children age 4 and up.
The recalled games were sold at discount department and toy stores nationwide from June 2005 through January 2006 for about $25.
Consumers should take the recalled Chicken Limbo game away from children immediately and contact Milton Bradley to receive a free repair kit. The kit contains two yellow plastic replacement side poles to stabilize the toy.
