Fisher-Price Recalls Campsite Toy

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Mattel Inc.'s Fisher-Price is recalling its Little People Play 'n Go Campsite because a figure included in the playset poses a choking hazard.

The recall affects about 96,000 of the play sets in the U.S. and 14,000 in Canada, according to an announcement Thursday.

The company said a figure called Sonya Lee can break at the waist, and children could choke on small parts that become exposed.

There have been eight reports of the figure breaking, but no injuries have been reported, Fisher-Price said.

The seven-piece sets have the product number R6935. The name Sonya Lee is on the underside of the figure. Only figures that bend at the waist and have a green sweater and purple camera around the neck are affected by the recall.

The other pieces of the set are not affected.

The sets were sold at retailers around the country and online from October 2009 through August for $15.

Shoppers should stop using the product immediately and contact Fisher-Price for a free replacement.

The recall was announced in a news release sent in conjunction with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and its equivalent in Canada.
