 Family Dollar Recalls Toy Due to Laceration Hazard

KENTUCKY (02/04/15) - The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has announced a recall put forth by Family Dollar Stores regarding a toy that local citizens might have purchased for a Christmas present.

Family Dollar is recalling Tough Treadz Auto Carrier Toy sets due to laceration hazard.

According to CPSC officials, the die-cast metal cars may have sharp edges that pose a danger of cutting for local children. This recall involves a plastic toy truck with a plastic case that holds 6 die-cast metal toy cars in assorted colors. The truck is 14 inches long x 3 inches wide x 5 inches high. The cab of the truck comes in black, blue or red. The package is labeled as “Tough Treadz Auto Carrier” and has a white sticker in the upper right-hand corner with “$5” and “SKU 1004247” printed in red. The UPC code appears on a label on the back stating “Made in China.” The following UPC codes are included in this recall: 678565114083, 678565114090, 678565114106.
