Description: June 18, 1991 Release # 91-083 Remco Baby, Inc. Recalls Roll Back Wheel Toy WASHINGTON, DC -- In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Remco Baby, Inc., New York, NY is voluntarily recalling approximately 118,240 "Roll Back Wheel" toys, model number B356. When CPSC tested the toy in accordance with regulations under the Federal Hazardous Substances Act, small chips separated from the spokes of the toys creating small parts which pose a potential aspiration hazard for young children. The "Roll Back Wheel" is a ferris wheel with Muppet Babies' Kermit the Frog suspended in the middle. The wheel consists of two blue hard plastic spoked wheels that are approximately eight inches round. Upon rolling the wheel forward, it makes a rattle sound and automatically rolls backward. A label printed on the back of Kermit's head reads "ha! 1989, REMCO BABY INC., N.Y., MADE IN CHINA." The toy, imported by Remco Baby, Inc., was sold nationwide from January 1989 through December 1990 at various retail stores for $9.00 each. Some of the retail stores where the toy was sold are Ames Discount Stores, Inc., Rose's Stores, Inc., and Sears, Roebuck and Co. This voluntary recall is being conducted to prevent the possibility of injury associated with the small chips that separated from the spokes of the toy. The potentially hazardous toy was identified at the Port of Newark during a joint CPSC/U.S. Customs import surveillance program. Consumers are urged to take the toy away from young children immediately and return it to the store where purchased for a refund or they may mail the product to Remco Baby, Inc., 1107 Broadway, New York, NY 10018 for a full refund of the purchase price and shipping costs. For more information about this recall, consumers may call Remco Baby, Inc. at 1-212-675-3227.
