S.F. Co. Recalls Thousands Of ToysAug 7, 2002 | AP
A San Francisco company is recalling thousands of children's toys due to choking hazards.
Pottery Barn Kids is recalling some 3,800 wooden Star Clacker toys and about 3,000 wooden Ride-On Duck toys.
On the Star Clacker, the wooden peg can detach, posing a choking hazard, and the length of the toy's handle is not in compliance with government standards for the design and construction of baby rattles.
On the Ride-On Duck, the wheel cap can break, allowing the wheel to detach and release small parts.
The company has received one report of a wheel coming off the Ride-On Duck, but no injuries have been reported for either toy, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said Wednesday.
The 6-inch long clackers have a wooden handle and three wooden stars tied together, with the outside stars painted red, white or blue. They were sold at Pottery Barn Kids stores from April through July of this year for about $6.
The yellow duck is 12-inches high and 20-inches long, with an orange bill and orange wheels. The ducks were sold through stores, catalogs and the Internet from last September through June for about $49.
