The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission in conjunction with LaRose Industries, of Randolph, N.J., has announced a voluntary recall of about 11,000 Peanuts Flying Ace Ride-On Toys because the toy’s blue hubcaps can detach from the wheel’s axle, posing a choking hazard to young children.
This recall involves Peanuts Flying Ace ride-on toys modeled after older style airplanes. The toys are intended for children ages 12 months to 2 years. The body of the plane is red, the steering wheel, propeller and wings are yellow and the hubcaps are blue. “Snoopy Flying Ace” is printed on the front of the toy airplane and Snoopy characters are printed on each wing and on the front. The ride-on toys measure 19 inches long by 19 ½ inches wide (wing span) by 13 inches high. A hang tag attached to the product at purchase has “#38126” printed on it and one of the following date codes:
Consumers should immediately take the recalled ride-on toys away from children and return the product to any Target store for a full refund.
