Product Recall: Toys R Us Merry-Go-Rounds

Filed under: Alerts & Recalls

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced the recall of about 15,000 Playsafe Spinning Quad Merry-Go-Rounds due to a fall hazard. A bearing on the merry-go-round can fail and cause the seat to suddenly drop to the ground. The manufacturer, Pacific Cycle, has received one report of an injury to a child due to this defect.

The Playsafe Spinning Quad Merry-Go-Round has four yellow plastic seats and black and silver metal bars. They were made in China and sold exclusively by Toys R Us nationwide between January 2008 through March 2008 for between $80 and $100.

If you have one of these merry-go-rounds, you should immediately take it away from your child and return it to Toys R Us for a full refund. Alternately, you may contact Pacific Cycle to receive a free retrofit kit. You can reach the company by calling (877) 564-2261 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, or by visiting their Web site.
