The Houston Chronicle reports, “Local retailers pulled Fisher-Price tricycles, high chairs and toys from their shelves Thursday after the company announced a recall of more than 10 million products because of safety hazards. .. The recall is the largest for toys since Congress gave” the US Consumer Product Safety Commission “more regulatory power two years ago.” The agency “in cooperation with the company, issued a voluntary recall of 7 million Fisher-Price Trikes and Tough Trikes. It also recalled about 1 million Healthy Care, Easy Clean and Close to Me High Chairs.” The AP reports, “CPSC Chairman Inez Tenenbaum said manufacturers need to do more to build safety into their products before they reach store shelves. But she also offered praise for Fisher-Price for ‘taking the right steps by agreeing to these recalls and offering consumers free repairs or replacement.’”
