Recalled Little Tikes Little Tikes and the federal Consumer Product Safety folks just recalled 1.6 million Little Tikes workshop toys and trucks after discovering that the oversized plastic nails in the sets can lodge in children’s throats. One toddler had to be hospitalized after a toy nail became wedged in his throat. He’s OK now, but the nails pose a significant enough threat that the toy company has recalled them. If you’ve got one of these sets – the Swirlin’ Sawdust Workshop, the black pick-up truck with a tool kit, or any of the other recalled models, take the nails away and contact Little Tikes at (800) 791-2737 or www.littletikes.com for a replacement.
