The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the Holgate Toy Division, of Pepperell Braiding Co Inc., have announced a voluntary recall of about 5,000 Holgate Toys Playmats because the wheels on the wooden vehicles can detach, posing a choking hazard to young children.
Holgate Toys has received one report of the wheels detaching from the body of a vehicle. No injuries have been reported.
The Wegmans Playmat Set includes a 24-inch by 30-inch cotton canvas playmat and four toy wooden vehicles. The toy vehicles include a blue car, a red “Wegmans” delivery van, a green “Wegmans” farm tractor and a yellow “School Bus.” The sets were sold in a yellow box measuring about 12-inches by 12-inches with “Wegmans Playmat Set,” an age label circle with “2+” and “Made in the USA” printed on the front of the box. UPC Code 0 7789028735 4 is printed on the back of the box.
The toys were sold exclusively at Wegmans Food Stores nationwide from October 2012 through June 2013 for about $25.
