The Consumer Products Safety Commission announced a voluntary recall of the Playsafe Spinning Quad Merry-Go-Rounds on June 12, 2008. These toys were manufactured by Pacific Cycle, Inc. and sold exclusively at Toys R Us between January 2008 and March 2008 and are being recalled due to a fall hazard. The inner bearing on the merry-go-round can fail, causing the seat assembly to suddenly drop to the ground. This poses a fall hazard to children riding the merry-go-round.
Parents should immediately take the merry-go-round away from children and return it to Toys R Us for a full refund, or contact Pacific Cycle to receive a free retrofit kit.
For additional information, contact Pacific Cycle toll free at (877) 564-2261 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, or visit the firm’s Web site at www.pacific-cycle.com
