On April 4th, 2011, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission in cooperation with Infantino LLC of San Diego, CA, issued a voluntary recall of Troy the Activity Truck due to a potential choking hazard.

What do you need to know about this recall?

About 40,500 of these toy trucks were sold in the United States and about 1,900 of them were sold in Canada
and they were distributed by Infantino LLC, of San Diego, Calif. There is a potential for some of the plastic beads on the activity truck to detach, posing a choking hazard to young children.

To date, Infantino has received 28 reports of the plastic beads detaching from the bead runs on the activity trucks, including two reports of young children gagging on the plastic beads. This recall involves "Troy the Activity Truck," which is blue, red and yellow with plastic star, circle and heart beads attached to the bead runs on the back of the truck and has a face on the front. "Infantino" is printed on the front of the toy truck. Model number 153-210, 206-110 or 506-110C is printed underneath the truck. When its switch is turned on, the truck plays music and the back wheels spin.

These toy trucks were sold at  Babies R Us, Toys R Us, Meijer, TJ Maxx, Marshalls and other toy stores nationwide from September 2009 through February 2011 for about $15.
