Description: Riviton Sets Recalled by Parker Brothers NEWS from CPSC U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission Office of Information and Public Affairs Washington, DC 20207 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE December 11, 1978 Release # 78-103 Riviton Sets Voluntarily Held WASHINGTON, D.C. (Dec. II) -- More than 125,000 toy construction sets manufactured by Parker Brothers are being voluntarily held in inventory in two company warehouses in Salem, Massachusetts and Des Moines, Iowa, after the company announced its voluntary recall of 900,000 Riviton sets. A Parker Brothers spokesman told the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) that 27,000 of the Riviton construction sets have now been returned. Parker Brothers had made the decision to voluntarily withdraw this product from the market because of two accidental deaths associated with the product. The company reached this decision after the recent death of a 9-year-old child was attributed to the choking on a rubber fastening rivet from the Riviton Construction Toy. Riviton Construction Toys have been distributed nationally during the past two years. Parker Brothers, a subsidiary of General Mills, Inc., is asking all consumers to return the product for a full refund to the store from which it was purchased or to mail it direct to Parker Brothers, 190 Bridge Street, Salem, MA 01970. All retailers have been asked to remove the product from their shelves.
