Description: Wooden Stacking Ring Toys Voluntary Recall by IKEA NEWS from CPSC U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission Office of Information and Public Affairs Washington, DC 20207 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE May 11, 1999 Release # 99-110 Company Phone Number: (800) 793-5408 CPSC Consumer Hotline: (800) 638-2772 CPSC Media Contact: Nychelle Fleming, (301) 504-7063 CPSC, IKEA Announce Voluntary Recall of Wooden Stacking Ring Toys to Replace Top Red Ball Pieces WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), IKEA U.S. Inc., of Plymouth Meeting, Pa., is voluntarily replacing the red ball pieces on top of the wooden stacking rings on about 28,000 stacking ring toys. The red ball that tops this toy poses a choking hazard to young children. IKEA has received one report of a 4-year-old boy in Europe choking to death on the top ball portion of the stacking ring toy. No other injuries have been reported. The stacking ring toy, called "MULA," is 8.5 inches high. The toy consists of eight brightly colored, wooden rings; a red, top ball; and a pedestal base with a stacking rod. When all the pieces are stacked in order, the toy resembles an inverted cone with the red ball capping it. There is a sticker under the pedestal base with the words, "Design and Quality" and "IKEA of Sweden" written on it. The toy is packaged in either a white cardboard box with "MULA" printed in orange, or sold shrink-wrapped with "MULA" and "Stacking rings" printed on the plastic wrapping. IKEA stores nationwide sold these stacking toys from October 1991 through April 1999 for about $6. Consumers should take the red ball that tops this toy away from children immediately. Consumers can mail the ball to IKEA or take it to any IKEA store to receive a redesigned top piece. The red ball can be mailed to IKEA U.S. Inc., 496 West Germantown Pike, Plymouth Meeting, PA 19462. Postage costs will be reimbursed. Consumers also can return the stacking ring toy to any IKEA store for a refund. For more information, consumers should call IKEA at (800) 793-5408 between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. EDT Monday through Saturday. [Learn More]
